Fernando de Queiroz Scherer (born October 6, 1974 in Florianópolis) is an international top swimmer from Brazil, who won the bronze medal in the 50 metres freestyle at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He did so once again four years later in Sydney with the Brazilian relay team in the 4x100 metres freestyle.

His first big title came at the inaugural 1993 FINA Short Course World Championships in Palma de Mallorca, where he won the 100 metres freestyle. Scherer is nicknamed "Xuxa" in his native country, and he became Brazil's Sportsman of The Year in 1995, after winning one golden and one silver medal at the 1995 FINA Short Course World Championships in Rio de Janeiro.

Scherer is currently involved in the organization "Cansei".
