The New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for college scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year.

Two Academic and Two Athletic Scholarships are offered in the amount of $3,000 each. The winners will receive their awards at this year’s Italian American Day on June 5th, in Albany and recipients must be present to accept them.

Requirements for the Academic Scholarship are the student’s grade point average, higher education interest and goals, community involvement and individual need. Students who apply for the Athletic Scholarship have to demonstrate athletic involvement, achievements and interest in continuing those activities in college.

The Conference of Italian American State Legislators has awarded these scholarships for 15 years. The dream to pursue a higher education should not be marred by the inability to pay, and it is truly my honor to commend such well deserving students from my district.

To obtain an application, please call my District Office at 718-727-9406. Applications are due no later than April 14th, 2017.
