Scholarship Details

Two awards in memory of Vince and Beth Amico will be made annually and paid per semester. Each award made will be for an amount up to $2,500 or one half of the available balance in the fund prior to the award, whichever is less.

One award will be made for the FALL semester and the other for the SPRING semester. Applications for the FALL award are due April 30th, and applications for the SPRING semester are due September 30th. The FALL award will be made by May 31st, and the SPRING award will be made by October 31st. Application instructions will clearly state due dates and submission details.
