Stephan P. Hagelauer Memorial Scholarship

Mission Statement

The Stephan P. Hagelauer Memorial Scholarship was created to support educational programs and award scholarships for post secondary education (2 year/4 year college or university or vocational/technical institute) to a deserving Chester County high school senior whose life has been impacted by Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Priority will be given to the applicant who has most closely exhibited leadership skills, participated in tennis, community service and has taken French language courses. The Fund will award a one-time, $1,000 scholarship.

Stephan was born in France, growing up mainly in Paris and spending the summers in Corsica. He grew up in a well-known tennis family and his love for the sport was activated at a young age. His early academic life was cultivated by Jesuit brothers where Stephan developed his inquisitive mind and thirst for knowledge. Stephan Hagelauer was a true leader who had the ability to instill passion and direction in those around him. He inspired those around him to be their best whether in a business setting, supporting a charitable initiative or when playing tennis, his passion. It is in memory and honor of Stephan’s many contributions that the Stephan P. Hagelauer Memorial Scholarship was founded.
