This is an endowed scholarship that will generate its own income and not be totally dependent on new funding every year. It carries the name of the Italian aviator who died in 1919 after whom our Lodge is named. It is an opportunity to extend ourselves to the broader community and enhance the visibility of our Lodge with our mission to preserve and promote Italian culture beyond Bella Villa Hall. Finally, it is a way to help deserving students of Italian American heritage to succeed in their college studies.
