The Peter A. Fabrizio, Jr. Scholarship Fund, in the amount of $500, was established in 2003 and is given to a Rome Catholic School third grader who holds the highest grade average at the end of May. Peter died in a tragic auto accident in 2002 and, at the request of his parents, the Foundation is administering the scholarship.
