King Scholarship Foundation. “Extending the deadline to June 30 gives more time for St. Lucie County residents who are interested in pursuing careers in the health sciences to apply for these scholarships.”

The Foundation Board hopes that the application extension will inspire future doctors, nurses and others interested in health professions, who have experienced enormous changes in their lives due to the Coronavirus outbreak, to hold fast in their educational pursuits.
