– Assemblyman Andrew Garbarino (R-C-I) – District7 announced today that the New
York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting
applications for four $2,000 scholarships to be awarded June 9th at their
Annual Legislative Conference Day.
“Given the high costs of college, every opportunity must be made by local students and their working families to meet their required expenses with scholarships as well as with student loans, available financial aid, and personal contributions,” said Garbarino. “I highly recommend that our area’s students apply to the Conference for these prestigious scholarships so that they may hopefully secure as much extra help with their expenses as possible.”
This year, the Italian-American State Legislators Conference will be awarding four $2,000 scholarships to four current or future college students from New York State. Eligibility will be based upon the student’s grade point average, interest in pursuing a higher education, involvement in the local community as well as individual financial need.
The Conference is a bipartisan organization of New York State Assembly and Senate members who are actively involved in promoting and celebrating the state’s Italian-American community. The Conference mission is to work hard to elevate and highlight Italian-American contributions to the State of New York and beyond, in all aspects of society, including literature, the arts, architecture and politics. The conference also tries to dispel negative stereotypes of Italian-Americans.
“Our conference is very proud of our role in promoting higher education and assisting students in reaching their academic goals and full potential for future success in the global marketplace,” Garbarino continued. “This year’s recipients will be invited to Albany to receive their scholarship awards in June.”
Area students may request an application by contacting our Albany office at (518)-455-4611.
Scholarship applications are due May 2nd and should be returned to either:
