An exciting partnership between Wright State University and the John Pirelli Sons of Italy Lodge is dedicated to help preserve and promote Italian culture in the region and to provide financial assistance to students of Italian descent at Wright State University. Accordingly, we are pleased to announce that the John Pirelli Lodge Italian American Scholarship is now available for application. Students must be of Italian descent, submit an essay that documents ancestry and states why the applicant should be awarded this scholarship. The student must be of good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.0, and be a full time undergraduate student. In the essay the student may also choose to discuss their academic and professional goals, activities that demonstrate a strong work ethic, and any evidences of connection to aspects of Italian and/or Italian American culture.
