TITUSVILLE, FLA, Jan. 10, 2019—Applications for the Karla Foster, RN, Memorial Scholarship are now being
accepted for students pursuing nursing degrees. Scholarship applicants
must be residents of North Brevard County; be accepted into a nursing
program; and possess a 3.0 or better grade point average. The awardee
will be provided $3,000 to be applied toward tuition, books, supplies
or other expenses related to completing the student’s nursing program.
The scholarship was established by Doug Foster in loving memory of his
wife, Karla, who was tragically killed on Sept. 11, 2006 by a hit-and-run
driver. Karla had been a nurse at Parrish Medical Center for more than
22 years. This scholarship honors Karla and the profession she loved so
much, and offers the opportunity to a deserving nursing student to carry
on the professionalism, commitment, dedication and loving care that she
demonstrated all her life.
