The Michael G. Fitzpatrick Scholars program has been created in memory of and honors the legacy of longtime Bucks County Commissioner and Congressman Michael Fitzpatrick, a dedicated and tireless public servant. The scholarship program is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Michael G. Fitzpatrick Foundation.
"Michael's family and friends established the Michael G. Fitzpatrick Foundation to honor his legacy of selfless public service. The Michael G Fitzpatrick Scholarship will benefit the neediest of students at Bucks County Community College. It is our hope that these scholars, during their time in school and after graduation, will establish and promote a county-wide "peace corps" of selfless public service."
