Italian American club of Maui provides scholarship

A $1,200 scholarship is being offered by the Italian American Club of Maui.

The club’s mission is to promote the Italian culture through fellowship, good food and friendship.

It also raises funds for a yearly scholarship that is awarded to a Maui high school senior to apply toward higher education. High school seniors may pick up the four-page scholarship application at their school office. Applications went out to 13 schools on Maui.

The scholarship application will be reviewed for four criteria: an essay topic on “How the Italian culture or persons of Italian ethnicity have influenced the American experience,” completeness of the application, the student’s grades and extracurricular activities.

All completed documents must be submitted by the postmark date of April 22.
