Scholarships

In keeping with the Hall's mission, one of the first things to be established was a scholarship fund. 

At the annual banquet, two high school scholarships are awarded: The Furher Family Athletic Scholarship and the Ed Boyle Soccer Scholarship (see below).  Applications forms for each can be downloaded from the sidebar to the left; additional copies are available in the Guidance Office. Applications are due by April 1.

The Committee has established smaller scholarships for the middle school. Each year, two Dorseyville students receive a $100 Wateska Scholarship to attend a sports camp. 

Fuhrer Family Athletic Scholarship

The Fuhrer Family Athletic Scholarship was established to honor a Fox Chapel Area High School senior who has excelled in an athletic activity while maintaining high academic standards. The scholarship awards up to $2,500 annually to a Fox Chapel Area High School Senior who has shown a commitment to continuing his/her education beyond high school.

This scholarship is renewable for three additional consecutive years if acceptable standards are maintained, making the total scholarship worth up to $10,000.

The scholarship is presented at the Annual Induction Banquet of the Fox Chapel Area Schools Sports Hall of Fame each June. The recipient is required to attend the banquet.

 

Ed Boyle Soccer Scholarship

The Ed Boyle Scholarship is named for the beloved physical education teacher and coach who initiated the Fox Chapel Area School District soccer program.

A collegiate All American, Ed Boyle served as head coach of the varsity team for nine years, leading the team to WPIAL Championships in 1964 and 1967. He returned to the program as an assistant coach in the late 70s and continued in that capacity until his retirement in 1992.

After his death in 2008, the Boyle Family, with contributions by faculty, fellow coaches, and former players, established a $1,000 scholarship in his name to be given to a graduating male soccer player. Established through the Pittsburgh Foundation, the scholarship is awarded according to their scholarship guidelines to a student who exemplifies the spirit and the talent of Coach Boyle.

The scholarship is presented at the Annual Induction Banquet of the Fox Chapel Area Schools Sports Hall of Fame each June. The recipient is required to attend the banquet.
