Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) announced the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting student applications for college scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year.
There are two academic and two athletic scholarships being offered, each for $3,500.
Applicants need not be of Italian-American heritage to apply, and applications are due on March 29th.
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 on the rise and anything we can do to make it more affordable is paramount. Students in Rockland and Westchester Counties should take full advantage of this opportunity. It would be exciting to see a student or students from our area chosen for these scholarships,’ said Senator Carlucci.
Winners will receive their awards at this year’s Italian American Day on June 3rd in Albany, and recipients must be present to accept them.
The Conference of Italian American State Legislators has awarded these scholarships for 16 years.
Applications are available online or you can pick one up at Senator Carlucci's Rockland office.
Applications can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at our offices between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.:
