The Fisher Cats Foundation is dedicated to bettering the lives of young people and is proud to support our youth through the Fisher Cats Foundation Scholar-Athlete Scholarships. Each year, the foundation awards $30,000 in scholarships to ten New Hampshire students and two Massachusetts students.The New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Fisher Cats Foundation are committed to supporting a diversity of students. Awards will reflect that commitment to geographic, gender, economic and field of study diversity, with consideration for population density. This year, in addition to the Swymer Family Scholarship, an award offered annually to a student who has overcome a barrier and gone on to college, one of the awards will be named in honor of Chris Carpenter of the 2011 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Furthermore, one of the awards, the Easter Seals Veterans Count Scholarship, will be awarded to a graduating New Hampshire high school senior whose parent or guardian is an active, reserve or veteran member of the United States Military.
