UTICA, N.Y. – State Sen. Joseph Griffo, R-47, is accepting applications from local students for the New York Conference of Italian-American State Legislators scholarships.

There are two academic and two athletic scholarships available for $4,000 each.

Applicants should have a grade point average of 85 or higher; be active in community service and extracurricular activities; demonstrate financial need; and in the case of the athletic scholarship, be involved in at least one organized sport.

State Sen. Joseph Griffo encourages students to apply and potentially curb some college debt.

“The price of attending college is a very serious concern for many students and families throughout New York State,” he said. “This is a chance to help students lessen the burden of college debt and to defray some of the expenses incurred by seeking higher education. I encourage every eligible student in my district to apply for this scholarship.”

Applications will be accepted from students in the 47th Senate District who are either currently in college or high school seniors planning to pursue higher education.

Griffo’s district includes parts of Oneida and St. Lawrence counties, and all of Lewis County.

Students may request an application by contacting Griffo’s office at 315-793-9072, emailing griffo@nysenate.gov or by visiting the Deputy Minority Leader's website at www.nysenate.gov/senators/joseph-griffo.

The deadline to submit applications is Monday, March 16, and recipients will be announced in April.
