The Stark County Italian-American Foundation was organized with the following objectives to be fulfilled:
The festival was an immediate success when it first began in 1987. Within two years, the foundation established and implemented our current scholarship program. Every year, since 1989, the foundation has granted college funds to local teens of Italian-American decent. With the help of our Stark county community we have been able to award over $230,000 towards higher education for over 177 students over the past 30 years.
We are dedicated to growing our scholarship funds so that many more of our area youth will be helped to further their education. The ongoing support of our festival throughout the community makes this possible. We are most appreciative of our many loyal patrons.
For more information to apply for our 2021 scholarships, please reach out to your school guidance counselor for more details and how to apply”
Each applicant will be awarded a $2,000.00 scholarship. With the awards this year, our Foundation will have awarded a total of $230,000.00. Scholarships are made possible thru our Italian Festival and the support of members/organizations within our community. A special thanks to the Dominic J. Bagnoli Memorial and the United Fossaltese Club. Join the Festivities as we applaud our 2020 Scholarship Recipients:
