Long Island, NY - February 28, 2018 - Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) is pleased to announce the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators will be offering four scholarships to current and prospective college students. Each scholarship is worth $3,000 and applications are due by Monday, April 16 to Ra’s district office. Awards will be presented on June 4 in Albany at the conference’s annual Legislative Conference Day.
“I am so pleased that we are able to once again offer this scholarship and help aid four more students’ dreams of furthering their education,” said Ra. “With the cost of college continually climbing, it is crucial that we let our children know that going to college is still an option for them with opportunities such as this scholarship. As there are so many talented young adults on Long Island who are deserving of awards such as these, I would encourage all eligible to apply.”
In addition to having the financial need for the scholarship, applicants must maintain a GPA of at least 85, participate in extracurricular activities, have good conduct, be an active member of their community and exhibit a commitment to earning a higher degree of education. Two scholarships will be awarded based on a student’s academic achievements and two will be awarded based on a student’s athletic performance.
Applications for residents of the 19th Assembly District can be obtained by calling Assemblyman Ra’s District Office at (516) 535-4095 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can be submitted in person or by mail to Assemblyman Ra’s District Office by Monday, April 16 at 825 East Gate Boulevard, Suite 207, Garden City, NY 11530.
