Scholarship Program

UF Health Leesburg Hospital Foundation is honored to award thousands of dollars in scholarships annually to students graduating from Leesburg High School, hospital teen volunteers and hospital employees who wish to pursue or advance their career in the healthcare field. Thanks to the generous legacy of several endowments we are able to continuously support the mission of UF Health Leesburg Hospital Foundation.
