The Manatee County Medical Education Foundation Scholarship is offered to U.S. citizens legally residing in Manatee County for the past two years who are pursuing careers in Nursing or specific health-related fields (that provide direct medical care to individuals and excluding pre-med, chiropractic, optometry, pharmacy, dental or general sciences). Applicants must be accepted into a two- or four-year educational institution, demonstrate financial need and have a minimum 2.5 GPA. This scholarship is renewable based on fund availability.
MCF is a 501(c)(3) public charity. As a supporting organization to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, we benefit from an administrative support relationship with pooled assets, shared financial and legal services, and other resources. This allows us to focus on donors who live and give in Manatee County and nonprofits that build a thriving community. The mission of Manatee Community Foundation is partnering with our citizens to strengthen and enhance our community through philanthropy, education, and service—now and forever. Dollar amounts for the scholarships will vary.
