The Baptist Health Care Foundation is committed to serving the needs of thousands of individuals within the community by improving the health care services that are provided locally.

Annually, several $1,000 scholarships are awarded to team members through the Helping Hands Team Member Assistance Program. In addition, the Luther and Kathy Taylor Nursing Program awards one $2,500 nursing scholarship.

Scholarships are open to all Baptist Health Care affiliate team members and any team member dependents and residents of the Northwest Florida and South Alabama community who are enrolled in a college or university and are working to obtain a degree within the health care industry. Applicants for the nursing scholarship must currently be accepted into a nursing program.

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of academic excellence, financial need, extracurricular activities, demonstrated aptitude and health care areas of critical need. Payments will be made directly to the student’s college or university.
