The Love of Running Scholarship

The Sean Patrick French Memorial Scholarship

The Good Sport Scholarship

 

The Sean Patrick French Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Sean Patrick French Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2002 in memory of Sean to recognize the positive achievements and character of deserving high school seniors. The scholarships must be used towards the costs of post secondary education including 2 or 4 year colleges, and trade or technical schools. The fund was created using a portion of the proceeds from the inaugural Sean’s Run and from ongoing contributions from individuals, businesses and community organizations. The Fund is administered by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, Sheffield, MA. (www.berkshiretaconic.org) All contributions to the fund are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.

Past recipients and the Fund, can be found here.
