Over $250,000 has been awarded to students of Italian heritage over the years by the JCCIA through various scholarships. Also, over $200,000 has been awarded over the years to young Italian Americans through Women’s Division at their annual Scholarship/Fashion Show.


In addition, close to $50,000 has been awarded at the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Humanitarian of the Year Award reception. Needless to say, this important program will continue for years to come.
