Senator Latimer Announces College Scholarships Available
Senator George Latimer (D-Westchester) announced today that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four (4) $3000 scholarships that will be awarded at the Annual Legislative Conference Day on June 5, 2017.
The scholarships, 2 for academics and 2 for athletics, are available for current or future college students from New York State. Eligibility is based upon the student’s grade point average (GPA), interest in pursuing a higher education, involvement in the local community and financial need. For the athletic scholarships, the applicant should indicate the sport and schools that have indicated interest or player commitment.
“With the cost of higher education still growing faster than the rate of inflation, it is crucial for students and their families to look for opportunities to help defray the costs. I’m very pleased that the Italian-American State Legislators Conference is again making scholarships available, and look forward to the possibility of a scholarship going to one of my constituent families,” Senator Latimer said. Students from Port Chester and Mamaroneck have secured these scholarships in the past.
Area students may request an application by contacting Andy Genna in Senator Latimer’s District Office at 914-934-5250. Applications are due in Senator Latimer’s Albany Office, 615 LOB, Albany, NY 12247 on Monday, April 17, 2017.
