The Vitale scholarship is for adult students that graduated from one of the six school districts in Susquehanna county who could benefit from financial assistance.
College Seniors and Graduate School Students who will complete their studies during the 2015-2016 academic year are encouraged to apply for The John J. & Ann Vitale Scholarship at The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. The Scholarship is available to alumni from the six school districts in Susquehanna County who are in their final year of college or graduate school and who have incurred student debt. The Scholarship award for 2015 will be announced soon, and if undergraduate students attend college within Pennsylvania they will be nominated for potential matching grants.
Applications must be postmarked by July 1, 2015 and returned to The Community Foundation. The scholarship recipient will be chosen during the summer to ensure timely payment directly to the college so that the student may make appropriate financial plans.
John Vitale passed away in March of 2006, after a lifetime of supporting his community and neighbors. This scholarship is one way his family has chosen to honor his memory and continue a tradition of community support.
