Lupinacci and Italian-American State Legislators announce $12,000 in scholarships.


Today, Assemblyman Chad A. Lupinacci (South Huntington) is reminding current and future college students that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four scholarships worth $3,000 each. Applications are due by Monday, April 21, 2017 and will be awarded in June at the conference’s Annual Legislative Conference Day.

Awarded to four current or future college students from New York State, these scholarships will be based on a student’s grade point average, interest in pursuing a higher education, involvement in the local community and individual financial need. Two of these scholarships will be awarded to students for their academic success, while the other two will be awarded to student-athletes for their athletic recognition.

“I’m happy to announce we have begun accepting athletic and academic applications for the 2017 New York Italian-American Conference of State Legislators Scholarship,” said Lupinacci. “As the price tag to attend college increases, it is critical that students utilize opportunities like these so hardworking Long Island students may overcome the overwhelming financial burden to pursue an education. We have so many talented, ambitious kids in our community and I encourage interested students to apply.”  

The Italian-American conference is a bipartisan organization of New York State Assembly and Senate members who are actively involved in promoting and celebrating the state’s Italian-American community. The mission of the conference is to elevate and highlight Italian-American contributions to the state of New York and beyond in all aspects of society, including literature, the arts, architecture and politics. The conference also tries to dispel negative stereotypes of Italian-Americans.

Applications for residents of the 10th Assembly District can be obtained by emailing, visiting the district office at 630 New York Avenue, Suite D, Huntington, NY, or by calling (631) 271-8025.

Applications can be submitted in person or by mail to the Assemblyman’s district office, or by email to (subject: Italian-American Scholarship Application). Applications are due by Monday, April 7.

Assemblyman Lupinacci represents the 10th District, which consists of parts of Suffolk county. For more information, please visit Assemblyman Lupinacci’s Official Website
