Staten Island/Brooklyn - Senator Diane J. Savino (Democrat-District 23) announced today that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four $2,000 scholarships to be awarded June 9th at their Annual Legislative Conference Day.

“Given the high costs of college, every opportunity must be made by local students and their working families to meet their required expenses with scholarships as well as with student loans, available financial aid, and personal contributions,” said Senator Savino. “I highly recommend that our area’s students apply to the Conference for these prestigious scholarships so that they may hopefully secure as much extra help with their expenses as possible.”
