Palumbo Announces Italian-American Scholarship

March 5, 2018

Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R,C,I,Ref-New Suffolk) announced today that the Conference of Italian-American State Legislators will once again be offering four scholarship opportunities, two academic and two athletic, at this year’s Italian-American Day. The four scholarships will be for $3,000 each and are available to residents of the 2nd Assembly District who are current college students or high school seniors entering college.

“This is a great scholarship program for college students and college-bound high school graduates,” said Palumbo. “Attending college is obviously a considerable expense. I am extremely proud to be a part of this conference’s efforts to help local students and families pursue their athletic and academic dreams.”

As in years past, the scholarship is only open to constituents who reside in the districts represented by senators and assembly members who are part of the Italian-American Legislator’s Conference. Due to the large number of applications, the top two applicants from each category will be picked.

Palumbo said all applications in the 2nd Assembly District must be submitted to his office by Friday, March 30. They can be obtained by contacting his office at 631-727-0204, emailing or by visiting his district office at 30 W. Main St., Suite 103 in Riverhead. If you are submitting an application by email, please make sure the subject line reads: Application for Italian-American Scholarship.
