2016 Alliance Scholarships
The St. Johns County Medical Alliance has awarded academic scholarships to St. Johns County high school graduates pursuing their education in a medical related field of study.
Every year, the St. Johns County Medical Alliance, in conjunction with the St. Johns County Medical Society, offers academic scholarships to graduating St. Johns County high school seniors pursuing an education in pre-medicine, nursing, or allied health. Scholarship applicants are evaluated on academic ability, school involvement, financial need and community service.
The Alliance offers continued support for previously awarded scholars that continue their studies in a medical field, maintain at least a 3.0 GPA and keep in contact with the Alliance. Matthew Guthrie, a former award winner, will receive funding for continuation of his studies at the University of Florida (not pictured).
This year’s awards have been presented to: Jensen Thompson of Bartram Trail High School, who will attend the University of Florida to study Biology on a pre-med tract to follow her interests in pediatric cardiology and Cynthia Hund of St. Joseph Academy, who plans to pursue a pre-med major in Biology at Clemson University.
The St. Johns County Medical Alliance is comprised of spouses of St. Johns County physicians. Its purpose is to promote health education, identify and address health-care needs and issues, participate in health-related legislation, and provide college scholarships to St. Johns County students.
