The Fogolâr Furlan di Calgary is one of sixteen similar associations in Canada whose founding members originate from the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia in Italy. One of the mandates of our association is the preservation of our language and, as such, we are pleased to offer this scholarship to students of Italian in Canada. Our founding members emigrated from their homeland because they sought opportunity and advancement in a new country. They worked hard for the interests of their families and the pursuit of a post-secondary education was something sought for their children. Therefore, it is only fitting that we would establish a scholarship that would promote education and financially assist students studying Italian.
One award at approximately $5000, applied directly to tuition.
The applicant must:
- Be an Alberta resident (either a permanent resident or a permanent resident studying full-time at a post-secondary outside the province).
- Be pursuing a graduate degree (Masters or Doctoral) in Italian Studies in any year of study.
- Be committed to Italian culture.
- Demonstrate high academic achievement.
