Academic Scholarships to Local Students


St. Augustine, FL (May 9, 2018) - -  The St. Johns County Medical Alliance has awarded scholarships to two graduating St. Johns County high school seniors pursuing further education in health-related fields.

Margaret Gupton, from Creekside High School, will study Health Science at The University of Florida. She plans to ultimately become an occupational therapist.
Claire Moritz , from Ponte Vedra High School, will study Biochemistry at The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia with the future aim to apply to medical school.

Each 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, community service and an interview.

The St. Johns County Medical Alliance represents 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. Former scholars may apply for continuing awards.  For more information about the Medical Alliance, go to www.sjcma.blogspot.com.
