  • Scholarship Description
  • The Columbus Citizens Foundation’s College Scholarship Program was established in 1984 at the directive of past Foundation President John Loconsolo. Recipients receive a four-year scholarship that helps underwrite the cost of their college tuition. Our scholarships, while generous, provide assistance towards tuition but will not cover payment for all school costs.

    Students who are of Italian descent (at least 25% Italian) with a GPA of 3.0 (85% or B) or higher who are from households where the total gross income does not exceed $25,000 per capita ($25,000 per person in the household) are eligible. For example, for a household of four, the maximum total gross income of $100,000 is eligible. Only seniors in high school who will enter college as freshmen in the Fall are eligible.

    All students who are selected as Columbus Citizens Foundation College Scholarship Recipients are required to enroll in Italian Language course(s) if offered at chosen school to fulfill their school’s language requirements. Additionally, all recipients are required to maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 (85% or B) or higher.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

As many other students, I appreciate the chances given by this website for scholarships, especially in this economy, and with tuition for colleges rising. I can use all the help I can get when it comes to college, tuition, financial aid, etc. and I'm thankful that there is a website like scholarships.com to help my family out financially in this situation.
