Nutley UNICO Scholarships

The Nutley Chapter of UNICO National, through the UNICO Foundation, Inc. will be offering four scholarships to high school seniors, as well as several other scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students of Italian descent. The Nutley chapter will sponsor eligible students who live in New Jersey.  These scholarships for high school students are in addition to local scholarships available to Nutley residents and require a separate application. There are four $6,000 grants that may be applied for under a single application (with three complete copies). 

Also available are scholarships for students who are currently in college or pursuing post graduate studies. The undergraduate scholarships are for literary studies, fine arts, science, engineering and those wishing to study abroad, specifically, as well as for students in their choice of major. Graduate grants are for any area, as well as medicine and nursing. There is also a scholarship for students of southern Italian ancestry.

Information about these scholarships is available online at www.unico.org. These scholarships must be applied for online. There are no paper applications.
