About Us

The focus of our organization is to provide scholarships to young women of Italian heritage who have demonstrated excellence in athletics, academics, leadership, fine arts and volunteering. The scholarship recipients are then honored at a premier dinner event that​ allows us to shine the spotlight on the successful recipients and on our Italian culture. We are proud to provide financial assistance to some exceptional young women to assist them in pursuing their post-secondary educational goals.
