Each year our parent organization, Lucchesi Nel Mondo, with funding from Regione Toscana - Consiglio dei Toscani all'Estero, provides scholarships for youth with Tuscan ancestry to attend this wonderful program. Currently the scholarships cover the entire amount for the College program, full room and board at Cristoforo Colombo College dorms, all excursions, and reimbursement of ½ the student's airfare if the program is successfully completed.
We would like to encourage all eligible members to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If there is someone in your immediate family with Tuscan heritage (Tuscan parents, grandparents, even great-grandparents) and you are between the age of 18 and 30 years old (by July of the year you're applying), please consider applying for the program.
Locally we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be selected in a given year, but usually 1-2 students from our club are selected for a scholarship to the program each year.
