Applications are now be accepted for the 2022 Giovanni Vitrano Memorial Scholarship. The application deadline for the Spring 2022 Scholarship closed May 1, and we are currently in the process of selecting winners. Members of the Class of 2023 will be eligible to apply in the fall of 2022 for next year’s award.
We are utilizing Bold.org to administer the 2022 scholarship. This means all prospective applicants must register for and apply through a Bold.org account. The Giovanni Vitrano Memorial Foundation Board of Directors will select three winners: 1 for $5,000 and two runners-up for $1,000. Bold.org will work directly with the financial aid departments at the winners’ school to disperse the funds.
