National Congress of Italian-Canadians Foundation

(Eastern Ontario and Outaouais District)

EDUCATION and  BURSARY

About the Scholarship and Bursary:

GIOVANNI CABOTO SCHOLARSHIP

These awards were established by the National Congress of Italian Canadians Foundation (Eastern Ontario and Outaouais District) and by The National Congress of Italian Canadians (National Capital District). We hope other associations and individuals will contribute to these funds, making this undertaking more effective in meeting its objectives. The objectives are to encourage Italian Canadians to pursue higher education and to encourage more widespread study of Italian and of Italian-Canadian culture and related studies. 

In closing, we urge students to apply as soon as possible. The prizes are to be awarded to students enrolled in subjects related to Italian and Italian- Canadian Studies (language, literature, culture, and history) and students of related subject areas.

At Carleton University, students of Italian origin, irrespective of courses of study, can apply for these awards. At the University of Ottawa, special consideration will be given to students of Italian origin and students who have been active in the Italian community. 

These awards are awarded annually, at both universities, and are restricted to full-time undergraduate students, who are in good academic standing and in need of financial assistance. Students who meet these criteria are encouraged to apply at their respective student awards/assistance offices.  How to apply

GIOVANNA PANICO MEMORIAL BURSARY

at Carleton University studying Italian and/or enrolled in subjects related to Italian and Italian-Canadian Studies (language, literature, culture and history) as well as students of related subject areas
