Assemblyman Joe Giglio (R,I,C-Gowanda) today announced that he is accepting applications in his Olean District Office for the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators scholarships. The Conference will award four $1,500 scholarships (two academic and two athletic) to student applicants from around the state. “I encourage all interested students to apply for this scholarship and demonstrate not only their academic skills, but also their involvement in extracurricular activities,” said Giglio. “I am confident that we will see many talented applicants and I encourage those who are interested in applying to contact my Olean district office for more information.” Only one academic and one athletic scholarship application from Assemblyman Giglio’s district may be included in the final statewide selection process. Applications to be considered for the fall academic year must be received by 5:00 p.m. on April 25. Scholarship applications will be evaluated based on students’ academic and athletic achievements, as well as extracurricular service, community service and financial need. Interested students can request an application by contacting Assemblyman Giglio’s district office at (716) 373-7103.
