Each Spring we hold our Annual Scholarship Breakfast. At this event the Society will present $10,000 in scholarships in the memory of Italian American Police Officers that lost their lives in the line of duty. These scholarships are available only to the children or grandchildren of members who are college bound high school seniors.
Members must have been in good standing with dues paid for five consecutive years.
Members that meet the above criteria that DO NOT have children can submit nieces and nephews in certain circumstances. For more information please contact the committee for more details. An application needs to be filled out by the Students & parents and submitted to the scholarship committee usually a month before our Scholarship Breakfast.
