Griffo urges students to apply for scholarships

New York State Sen. Joseph Griffo, R-47, Rome, is encouraging area high school seniors and current college students to apply for the 2022 New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators Academic and Athletic Scholarships.

The conference will be awarding two academic and two athletic scholarships, each in the amount of $4,000.

Area students can apply for the scholarship by visiting the conference’s website at www.nyiacsl.org/scholarships.

Applicants should: demonstrate a grade point average of 85 and over; demonstrate good conduct and the dedication to pursue and complete a higher education degree; be active in community and extracurricular activities; reside within Griffo’s district, which includes parts of Oneida and St. Lawrence counties and all of Lewis County; demonstrate financial need.

The deadline for applications is Friday, March 18. Applications will be evaluated by a review board and winners will be announced in early May.

Scholarship winners will be presented their award at a tentatively scheduled ceremony for May 23.

“Attending college can be a serious concern for many students and families due to cost,” Griffo said.

“These scholarships provide students with financial assistance that can help alleviate the burden of college debt and some of the expenses incurred seeking higher education. I encourage every eligible student in my district to apply for this scholarship,” he added.

The New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is a bipartisan organization of state Assembly and Senate members who actively promote and celebrate the state’s Italian-American community.

Griffo has been an active member of the conference and has served as the past president of the organization.
