On August 7th, following a formal dinner at the Four Seasons Austin Hotel, St. David’s Foundation formally announced this year’s Neal Kocurek Scholars. Students were joined by their families, board members, program supporters and mentors.
“These incredible students deserve the best that education has to offer,” said Earl Maxwell, CEO of the foundation.
“Many have overcome tremendous challenges, yet they have excelled academically. Our sincere hope is to help pave the way for these students’ future educational endeavors.”
St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship Fund provides each student with up to $7,500 per year for up to four years for undergraduate students, and up to four years for graduate studies and medical school at Texas colleges and universities. Students attending Texas community colleges receive up to $4,000 per year.
Recipients included graduating seniors from the Travis, Hays, Williamson, Bastrop and Caldwell county school districts. All students plan to pursue a career in health care.
