Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio (BHFSA) distributes grants annually to organizations which provide healthcare services and funds health education throughout Bexar County and contiguous counties in South Texas.

The purpose of providing scholarship grants is to make funding available to eligible students who reside in the service area and are attending local universities, colleges, and schools for approved academic areas.

Academic areas may include, but are not limited to, the following:
