RYE, N.Y. – State Sen. George Latimer, D-Rye, announced that the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators is now accepting applications for four $2,500 scholarships to be awarded to four current or future college students from New York state at the group's annual Legislative Conference Day on June 8.

In previous years, scholarships have been awarded to students from Port Chester and Mamaroneck.

“Given the high costs of college, every opportunity must be made by local students and their working families to meet their required expenses with scholarships as well as with student loans, available financial aid and personal contributions,” said Latimer. “I highly recommend that our area’s students apply to the conference for these prestigious scholarships so that they may hopefully secure as much extra help with their expenses as possible.”

Eligibility will be based upon the student’s grade point average, interest in pursuing a higher education, involvement in the local community and individual financial need. The conference is a bipartisan organization of state Assembly and Senate members who are actively involved in promoting and celebrating the state’s Italian-American community.

Area students may request an application by contacting Latimer's Albany office at 518-455-2031. Applications must be submitted to Latimer's Albany office by Friday, April 24.
