NEW CITY – Senator David Carlucci (D) announced today that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four $2,000 scholarships to be awarded June 9th at their Annual Legislative Conference Day.
“Given the high costs of college, every opportunity must be made by local students and their working families to meet their required expenses with scholarships as well as with student loans, available financial aid, and personal contributions,” said Senator Carlucci. “I highly recommend that students apply to the Conference for these prestigious scholarships so that they may hopefully secure as much extra help with their expenses as possible.”
Senator Carlucci honored the Ossining Girls Basketball team on the Senate floor today for winning the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class AA State Championship this year. The New York State Senate passed a resolution honoring the athletes for their victorious season. The team, along with coach Dan Ricci, made the trip to Albany to receive the resolution personally.The Ossining Pride Girls Basketball Team, for the second year in a row, captured the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class AA State Championship.

Purchase College, SUNY today announced it will offer renewable Dean’s List Scholarships to Rockland Community College (RCC) students who plan to pursue a BA at Purchase’s Rockland extension site. New York State Senator David Carlucci (38th Senate District) was instrumental in coordinating this new program that has direct benefits for his constituents.
“This scholarship provides an excellent opportunity for top achieving RCC students to earn a highly marketable degree without incurring significant debt,” says Thomas J.

The search is still on for an unclaimed lottery ticket worth $1 million sold at a Quick Mart in Nanuet one year ago — and the deadline to claim the prize of $1 million dollars is tomorrow. Under current law money that is not claimed within one year from the date of the drawing or from the close of the game in which the prize was won is forfeited and retained in the lottery prize account to be used for payment of any special lotto prizes that may be offered, or for promotional purposes to supplement other lottery games on an occasional basis.
Senator David Carlucci today announced legislation today that would put aside unclaimed lottery winnings into a special fund that would fund kindergarten throughout the State of New York.
