Scholarship Opportunity for Local Students
Assemblyman Jim Conte is again accepting applications in his district office for New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators scholarships. The group will award four $1,500 scholarships – two academic and two athletic – to student applicants from around New York State.
Eligible applicants can be high school students planning to attend college in the fall, current undergraduate students or graduate students and must reside in the 10th Assembly district.
“This is a terrific opportunity for students to receive a scholarship to assist them with the cost of paying for college,” said Conte. “A college degree will open many doors in life, but is also expensive. That’s why I am encouraging all area high school seniors to apply for this scholarship as a way to help offset the rising costs of earning a college degree.”
Completed applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 30 at Assemblyman Conte’s district office, 1783 New York Avenue, Huntington Station, NY 11746. Scholarship applications will be evaluated based on students’ academic and athletic achievements, as well as extracurricular service, community service and financial need.
One academic and one athletic scholarship application from Assemblyman Conte’s district will be included in the final statewide selection process. Interested students may request an application by contacting Assemblyman Conte’s district office at 631-271-8025.
