Giglio Announces Italian-American Legislators Scholarship

April 20, 2007

Assemblyman Joe Giglio (R,I,C-Gowanda) today announced that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications from throughout New York state for four $1,500 scholarships to be awarded in June at their Conference Weekend.

“We have many bright young men and women in our community who could use some help in defraying the high costs of attending college,” sad Giglio. “I am confident we will see many capable applicants and encourage those who are interested in applying to contact my Olean district office for more information.”

Four scholarships will be awarded to two students for academic merit and two for athletic achievement.

All applications are due May 4 in order for recipients to be considered for the new school year beginning this fall.

Scholarships will be awarded based upon several factors including grade point average, involvement in the community, as well as accomplishments in sports.

This year’s recipients will be invited to Albany to receive their scholarship awards in June.

Area students may request an application by contacting Assemblyman Giglio at (716) 373-7103.
