International Exchange Program

Since 1987, the Filitalia International Scholarship has been awarded to many young members of Filitalia International who show enormous passion in pursuing or continuing their education. Over 100 families have benefited from our commitment to higher education and the defense of the Italian language. The Scholarship Program is offered through the Filitalia Foundation and supported by donations from our distinguished families. Applicants are evaluated according to academic ability, social awareness, knowledge of Italian language and appreciation of the Italian heritage. A GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended. Scholarship applicants are judged by impartial members of the Language & Culture Committee. Amounts range from $250 to $1,000.

Filitalia International also offers several exchange program opportunities in the USA & Italy with the intent of helping young members of Filitalia International looking for future career opportunities to understand the Italian & American cultures. The program is addressed to members from 21 to 30 years old, undergraduate college students, and young professionals. The exchange program will cover an internship of 2-4 weeks, and Filitalia will grant a $500 maximum per participant as reimbursement of travel expenses, plus room and board reimbursement.
