Mark W. Herrbold Memorial Scholarship Endowment

Fund Purpose
GA: Support a scholarship for a medical student who has overcome significant adversity before applying to medical school. Scholarship shall be renewable for the student's full time in medical school.

This scholarship was established by Dr. Francis N. Herrbold in memory of his father, Mark W. Herrbold. Dr. Herrbold chose to establish this endowed scholarship in March of 2016, commemorating the 20th anniversary of his father’s death.

Dr. Herrbold was a second-year medical student at the University of Florida College of Medicine when his father passed away at the age of 48 due to aortic stenosis. Mr. Herrbold was an inspiration to his son, Fran, who first set up a spendable scholarship in memory of his father while still a student in medical school.

The Mark W. Herrbold Memorial Scholarship is intended for students who display the ability to overcome tremendous obstacles in their life, much like Dr. Herrbold did after experiencing the loss of his father.

Dr. Herrbold went on to graduate from UF College of Medicine in 1998. He now resides in Pensacola, Florida, where he practices Cardiac/Thoracic and Vascular Surgery. He is the proud father of three sons who reside in Gainesville with their mother, Kelly, who is also a UF alumnus.
