Scholarships

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.
