The AMHS scholarships recognize and reward individuals who are interested in Italian Culture by providing them financial assistance to pursue their academic studies. AMHS partners with National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) for the administration of the AMHS Scholarship Program. This partnering includes NIAF matching our $4,000.00 contribution thus resulting in the availability of two $4,000.00 scholarships. NIAF presents a selection of applicants who meet the above qualifications to AMHS by NIAF each year. The AMHS Scholarship Committee then makes its selection of the scholarship winners from among those qualified applicants.
