Awards Geared Towards Italian-American Students
Assemblyman Joe Lentol announced this week 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.
“The cost of attending college is increasing every year, every opportunity must be made by Brooklyn 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 Lentol. “I highly recommend that Brooklynites take advantage of this great opportunity and apply to the Conference for these prestigious scholarships so they may hopefully secure as much extra help with their expenses as possible.”
This year the Italian-American State Legislators Conference will award $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.
“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,” Lentol added.
This year’s recipients will be invited to Albany to receive their scholarship awards in June.
Students may request an application by contacting the office of Assemblyman Lentol at (718) 383-7474.
