Sean Patrick French Memorial Scholarship

Eligibility: Chatham High School Seniors
Applications Due: Apply Online by December 1st.

One $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a college bound senior at Chatham High School.

The scholarship winner, selected by a 5-person Advisory Committee convened by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, will be announced in February and will be the applicant who best exemplifies the same personal characteristics for which Sean is remembered:

  • Expresses and demonstrates compassion and sensitivity to
    all types of people
  • Includes all in his/her circle of friends
  • Has an ever-present smile and positive attitude
  • Provides volunteer service to his/her community
  • Demonstrates good sportsmanship

The Sean Patrick French Memorial Scholarship Fund was created by the family of Sean Patrick French following his tragic death as a passenger in an underage drunk driving car wreck on January 1, 2002 and is administered by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. Sean was a popular junior at Chatham High School, an honor roll student and a record-setting runner. The Scholarship Fund, in addition to the scholarships for Chatham High School seniors, also supports scholarships for Cross Country runners selected as the Good Sport Award winners by Section II coaches, and the Love of Running Scholarships awarded to residents of Columbia County who participated in two years of Cross Country or Track & Field. Past recipients and the Fund, can be found here.
