Columbus Citizens Foundation College Scholarship Program
Eligibility: Students who are of Italian descent and who are from households where the total gross income does not exceed $25,000 per capita are eligible.
Students must also submit transcripts of their academic records and have a minimum grade average of 85% or a 3.25 GPA. They must also demonstrate that they have performed community service activities.
Students must be a resident of one of the following states: NY, NJ, DE, DC, MD, PA, VT, RI, ME, MA, NH, CT
Process: Families of students interested in receiving a college scholarship must submit an application that contains detailed and confidential personal information. The application is available for download, and it must be sent to the Private School Aid Service, an independent financial review company that will determine eligibility based on financial need.
The applications of families that qualify for financial aid are then sent to the Columbus Citizens Foundation. A committee reviews and evaluates the applications and asks applicants and their families to visit the Foundation for a mandatory interview.
Approximately a month after all interviews have been held, the committee decides which applicants will be awarded scholarships. Notification is made by mail.
