The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) is calling on Italian American organizations nationwide to join its new scholarship database that will serve as a centralized resource for students searching for scholarships and grants to help finance their college education. The free database will launch on the NIAF website on September 1, 2023, and will include scholarship opportunities offered by Italian American organizations nationwide.

The catalog will provide a comprehensive list of scholarships available to Italian American students. It is designed for students to easily search for and apply for the scholarships that best fit their needs. All relevant details for each funding opportunity will be posted in the database, including the name of the organization offering the scholarship, the eligibility requirements, the application deadline, and the link to apply.

"We are delighted to create this database as a resource to connect students and Italian American organizations that offer scholarships," said Robert Allegrini, NIAF President. "NIAF hopes that this list will help Italian American students find the financial support they need to pursue their educational goals," added Allegrini.

Organizations interested in submitting their scholarship information to the database must submit the following by August 15:

An active NIAF membership is not required for interested applicants to access the database or for organizations seeking to list their scholarship opportunities.
