FitzGerald Scholars

FitzGerald also actively supports the United States Naval Academy and its midshipmen. His zeal for Academy baseball made possible the W.H.G. FitzGerald baseball clubhouse. FitzGerald created the W.H.G. FitzGerald Scholarship Program for graduate studies in the humanities in 1987. This program enables four scholars to study for two years at Oxford University. Scholarship recipients must demonstrate "scholarly attainment, leadership ability, and the capacity for devotion to a cause beyond self." FitzGerald is an integral part of the scholarship selection process and serves as a mentor to its recipients.
