The Italian American and Culture Committee of the Bronx and Westchester has established a college scholarship fund. Each year, Italian American students in their junior year at select high schools in the Bronx can apply for this scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to the student we believe best exemplifies an Italian American who values education, one who wants to learn more about their Italian heritage and family's background, as well as one who shows a desire to learn and speak the Italian language and keep Italian traditions. The winner will be chosen in the Spring of the student's Junior year and will therefore be able to attend our annual luncheon in September. The scholarship money will be dispersed once the student is enrolled the following Fall at the college of his/her choice.
