The scholarships are open to this year's graduating secondary school students planning to enroll in a post-secondary educational institution for the first time in 2021. To be eligible for this scholarship candidates must 1) be of Italian origin i.e. as having at least one parent or grandparent of direct Italian descent, 2) be living in a city or municipality within the 21-member Greater Vancouver Regional District, 3) have an academic standing sufficient to qualify for entry into the post-secondary institution of their choice, and 4) submit a completed application form with supporting documentation post-marked no later than June 15, 2021.
The scholarship winner will be determined by a selection committee appointed by the directors of the Confratellanza Italo-Canadese Society. The decision of the Selection Committee will be final.
The Confratellanza will pay the $1,000 scholarship directly to the winner. This will be done upon presentation of an official receipt of registration and fee payment from the educational institution to which the winner has enrolled.
The winner will be required to provide his/her photograph and agree to allow it and a related news release to be circulated and publicized.
