Senator Carlucci Announces 2018 Italian American Scholarships

Sen. David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) announces the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting student applications for college scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year.

There are two academic and two athletic scholarships being offered, each for $3,000. Applicants need not be of Italian-American heritage to apply. 

Students applying for the Academic Scholarship will be judged on grade point average, interest in pursuing a higher education degree, involvement in the local community, as well as individual financial need. 

Students applying for the Athletic Scholarship have to demonstrate athletic involvement, achievements, and interest in continuing those activities in college. 

"College tuition is often a burdensome expense and every little bit helps. I encourage students in Rockland and Westchester Counties to take full advantage of this opportunity. It would be exciting to see a student or students from our area chosen for these scholarships," said Sen. Carlucci.

All scholarship applications must be submitted to Sen. Carlucc's District or Ossining offices by Friday, April 13, 2018. 

Winners will receive their awards at this year’s Italian American Day on June 4th, in Albany and recipients must be present to accept them.

The Conference of Italian American State Legislators has awarded these scholarships for 15 years. 

Applications are available online below, or please contact Sen. Carlucci's Rockland or Ossining Offices to request a hard copy or for further information.
