Each year, college tuition rates continue to rise, and Im dedicated to doing my part to help students and reward them for their hard work, said Morinello. It is a great privilege to award scholarships to our incredible young adults. Id like to thank my colleagues in the Italian-American Conference for their continued efforts to help students across the state.
As in years past, the scholarships are only open to constituents in the districts represented by senators and assembly members who are part of the conference. Award criteria is based on students athletic success, grade-point average, interest in pursuing a higher education, involvement in the local community and individual financial need. Due to the large number of applications, the top two applicants from each category will be picked by an independent and bipartisan committee.
All applications in the 145th Assembly District must be submitted to Morinellos office by Wednesday, April 3. They can be obtained by contacting his office at 716-282-6062, emailing email@example.com, or by visiting his district office at 800 Main Street, Suite 2C
