The St. David's Neal Kocurek Scholarship

St. David’s Foundation Community Fund established the St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship to honor the vision and community spirit of its longtime CEO. A natural mentor, Kocurek was an advisor to many Austin school superintendents and educators. The scholarships are awarded to students who exemplify Neal Kocurek’s leadership and commitment to community. Financial need and scholastic merit will be considered in the review process. We have awarded over 550 Neal Kocurek scholarships since the program’s inception in 2005, and 61 were awarded last year.

Meet the mentors
Financial assistance is important, but being mentored by an accomplished professional in your field of study is priceless. The Kocurek Scholarship pairs students with faculty at our world-class medical centers, providing our scholars invaluable inspiration and real-world experience during their college journey.

Meet the donors

The Kocurek Scholarship is funded in part by the St. David's Foundation, but is only possible with the generous support of our gracious donors. Meet some of the families who have given their time and resources in pursuit of building a healthy community.
