Maria Manetti Shrem Grants for AP Italian 2018

The Commission for Language and Culture of COMITES (Committee of Italians Abroad), under the auspices of Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco,  is happy to announce the opening of the call for Maria Manetti Shrem Grants 2018. Students in the San Francisco Consular jurisdiction (Northern California, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Hawaii, Montana and Oregon) who take the AP Italian Exam 2018 and score 3 or higher will be awarded with prizes from 50 to 100$.

This initiative is possible thanks to the generosity of Ms. Maria Manetti Shrem, a stellar lover of Arts and Culture and well acclaimed Philanthropist of California.

Ms. Maria Manetti Shrem’s generosity paired with COMITES in an effort to promote the growth of the Italian Language and Culture in Northern California and beyond.
