The Alfonse J. Niedermeyer ’79 Memorial Scholarship Fund
This fund was founded in memory of Port Authority Police Officer Alfonse J. Niedermeyer, St. Francis Prep Class of 1979, who lost his life in the heroic rescue efforts of September 11, 2001.  Initial funding for this permanent scholarship fund came through the generosity of Al’s wife, Nancy, and ongoing support from family members, classmates and friends will be structured to insure that the fund can provide financial assistance to deserving students at the Prep in perpetuity.  

Certain considerations will be part of the process to help determine the scholarship recipients in any given year. These will include: students who have a sibling(s) currently enrolled in a Catholic school; students who are in good academic standing; students who experience a sudden loss or tragedy in their family; students who had an association with Al or the Niedermeyer Family.  Candidates will submit an essay describing how a scholarship will benefit their family. 

Award recipients will be determined at the discretion of St. Francis Prep’s Principal.  Mrs. Niedermeyer and her family will have the opportunity to review the performance of the scholarship recipients each year, meet with these students when convenient, and review the investment performance of the fund as appropriate.
