The 2020 Scholarship Handbook for Italian American Students

The handbook is provided by the Calandra Italian American Institute.

It is designed to provide, at a glance, the information necessary to determine whether a student is eligible for a particular scholarship. The scholarships included vary in dollar amount, as well as requirements for deadline, educational level, grade point average, and major area of study. Contact information is included for further reference.

The handbook is organized in three sections:

  • Scholarships for Italian American students includes scholarships awarded to students of Italian descent.
  • State-based scholarships includes scholarships awarded to students based on residency or college location, as well as Italian descent.
  • Scholarships for students of Italian studies includes scholarships awarded to students studying various disciplines of Italian. Many of these scholarships are awarded by universities to their students; some require Italian descent while others do not.

Be sure to review all the listings to determine which scholarships you may be eligible for and continue your own research to locate other possibilities not included here.
