Columbus Citizens Foundation
Scholarship Program

Our scholarship programs grew out of a desire to improve the lives of Italian-Americans. Between 1880 and 1920, over four million Italians immigrated to the United States. Our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were among them. Today, over 20 million Americans claim Italian heritage.

The Foundation awards scholarships to students of Italian heritage who show success in their studies and involvement with their communities. We award these exceptional students with multi-year scholarships.

Support Our Scholarship Program

A contribution to our general scholarship fund provides valuable tuition assistance to deserving students of Italian descent. A gift of any amount assures our continuing investment in the education of our CCF Scholars, who you can learn more about here, and below you can view an interview with some of our former scholarship recipients.
