Who Can Apply: U.S. citizens of Italian descent (at least one Italian or Italian-American grandparent) enrolled in an under-graduate or graduate program at a four-year, accredited academic institution for the 2016 Fall term. Previous SIF scholarship winners are not eligible. (Please note: Additional eligibility requirements may apply to specific scholarships.)
Application Form: The application form must be submitted along with requirements for each scholarship.
Transcripts: For each scholarship, transcripts provided must be through the December 2015 term. All transcripts must be stamped by the institution and included in a separate, sealed envelope. Transcripts may be submitted with entire application package; however, we understand some schools prefer to send them separately.
Processing Fee: A $40 non-refundable processing fee is required with each scholarship application. The fee includes a one-year national at-large membership to the Order Sons of Italy in America and a subscription to Italian American magazine.
- Only money orders will be accepted; no exceptions. Make money orders payable to the Sons of Italy Foundation.
- Any application without the processing fee or with the processing fee postmarked after the deadline will not be eligible. Processing fees for incomplete or late applications will not be refunded.
Deadline: February 29, 2016
