How to apply

The Bernadette C. Fischer Scholarship Fund annually awards a $1,000 scholarship to one student that is enrolled at Saint Jane Frances de Chantal School and is a registered member of Saint Jane Frances de Chantal parish in Pasadena, Maryland, in honor of the Fund’s namesake, Bernadette C. (Desverreaux) Fischer, a teacher at Saint Jane Frances de Chantal School for over thirty one years. The Fund awards the scholarship based on the student’s academic achievement and excellence, commitment to community service, integrity, initiative and self-direction, Christian character, and financial need.
