COVID-19 UPDATE ON SCHOLARSHIPS
Due to the COVID-19 situation, both ICC Scholarships and Tony Marzitelli Memorial Scholarship Fund have been suspended for 2020. We will keep this year’s applications on record, and we will evaluate them for the 2021 competition. Thank you for understanding.
Deadline for Submissions: May 31
The Italian Cultural Centre has established four Scholarships to be granted annually to four Grade 12 students residing in Metro Vancouver. One of the applicant’s parents must be of Italian heritage, and as well a member of the Italian Cultural Centre Society. The applicant will plan to attend a post-secondary institution where he or she must also be prepared to pursue Italian-language course work. Each scholarship is worth $500.00. Consideration will be given to both male and female applicants.
The completed application form, a letter of reference, and a copy of the most recent report card must be submitted to Edda Onesti, ICC Italian School Administrator by May 31. Prior to being awarded the scholarship money, the recipient must provide evidence of his or her enrolment in a post-secondary institution.
Tony Marzitelli Memorial Scholarship Fund
Deadline for Submission: May 31
Tony Marzitelli served on the Board of Directors of the Italian Cultural Centre for 17 years until his unexpected passing in 2010. Tony Marzitelli was an avid sports fan, but also valued the importance of community involvement and post-secondary education.
In memory of Tony Marzitelli, the Marzitelli family has established an annual $500.00 scholarship fund to reward a worthy graduating student with an opportunity to assist in the pursuit of their academic dreams.
Geraldo Donato Vertone Scholarship
Deadline for submission: November 30
The goal of the Geraldo Donato Vertone Scholarship is to give any student with the desire to further his/her education an equal opportunity to do so. We recognize that academic achievement is important, however we consider effort and genuine desire to learn just as essential. It is a combination of these two elements that ultimately leads to success. The Geraldo Donato Vertone Scholarship is open to any student who is willing to work hard toward his/her education. It is that effort we hope to reward.
