The UNICO National mission is to promote the image of Italian Americans along with Italian heritage and culture by supporting charitable, scientific, cultural, educational, and literary projects. Each year, UNICO Foundation and UNICO National Chapters donate approximately $1 million to various charities. Scholarships continue to be the primary focus, as roughly one-third of all monies raised goes to deserving students from chapter locations throughout the chain.
Unico offers dozens of scholarships for every grade from high school senior to and through graduate and medical school students. UNICO continues to provide scholarships to scholars to elevate the awareness of the real Italian and Italian American contribution to our way of life. It also continues to lead in the battle against discrimination.
