The New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four $2,500 scholarships.

“Over the next month I strongly encourage the hardworking students in our community to apply for these scholarships,” said Assemblyman Ed Ra. “The cost of tuition is at an all-time high, and every bit of assistance helps. Thank you to my colleagues in the Conference of Italian-American State Legislators for continuing to promote these scholarships to deserving students throughout Long Island and all of New York State. Good luck to the applicants in our community.”

This year, the Conference of Italian-American State Legislators will award four $2,500 scholarships (two academic and two athletic) to current or future New York college students.
