The Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans (JCCIA) is proud to offer – from the Frank J. Vigilante Scholarship
Fund – scholarships that are awarded to students of Italian extraction demonstrating financial need and high
academic achievement. Competitive students must be of Italian extraction, demonstrate financial need, and must have high academic achievement. The award amount is for a one-time annual scholarship. Students may reapply annually for consideration in the annual selection process.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of their Italian heritage, financial need, high academic achievement, essay (500 words or less) detailing why the Frank J. Vigilante Scholarship will help them to fulfill their personal and professional goals, and the quality of their JCCIA Frank J. Vigilante Scholarship Application. Students must have a demonstrated financial need for their education and must have proof of being admitted to and/or enrolled at an accredited institution of higher education.
