The scholarship program for the Il Circolo Society incorporates the true meaning of our mission statement "To preserve and promote the Italian culture through education, art and music". What better way to perform this than by fostering education of our young people. Our scholarships are offered to Florida residents, with some Italian family background, a high scholastic average and a strong desire to foster Italian culture. Students who receive our scholarships may also apply to the national organization of Italian American NIAF for a matching scholarship. A 3.5 GPA is required for both Il Circolo and NIAF scholarships. Scholarships range from $500 to $2,500.
To be considered for a Il Circolo scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:
Each scholarship award can only cover tuition and university-provided room and board. Scholarship recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support. Scholarship monies not used during one academic year are not transferable to the following academic year. Scholarship applicants and winners can and are encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
