About this Fellowship
Awards scholarships to Italian American students who demonstrate potential and high academic achievements. Scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate students.
For the purposes of the NIAF Scholarship Program, to be considered “Italian American,” the student must have at least one ancestor who has immigrated from Italy. Applicants must also be a member of NIAF themselves, or may use a parent, guardian, or grandparent's membership.
Each scholarship award can only cover tuition and university-provided room and board. Scholarship recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support. Scholarship monies not used during one academic year are not transferable to the following academic year. Scholarship applicants and winners can and are encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
Please note: Undergraduate Students applying for NIAF scholarships related to study abroad must also complete the study abroad application process with the Education Abroad Office. See more information about the study abroad application process and their deadlines at the Education Abroad website.
Current graduate students applying must also submit information to the Education Abroad Office at least 30 days prior to departure. See their website for more information.
Scholarship awards range from $2,500-$12,000.
