2018 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS PRESENTATION
On Sunday May 6, the annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon took place at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. The nearly forty people in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to interact with our scholarship winners, a breathtaking violin performance from our music scholarship winner and a sumptuous meal. A heartfelt “Thank You” goes out to all who have contributed to the Dante Scholarship Fund. This most important part of the Society could not continue without your support.
Our scholarship winners for 2018 are the following: Gian Aurand, from Metropolitan State University, received the Giulio Marcantonio memorial scholarship and will be going to the University of Torino. Rebecca Leyva-Hernandez, from Metropolitan State University, will be studying at The Lorenzo de’ Medici International Institute in Florence, Italy. Seth Bixler, from the University of Colorado in Boulder, received the Vincent and Gay Taglialavore scholarship and will attend the Siena International Music Program. Grazie to chairpersons John Giardino and Rosanna Patrona-Aurand, and the scholarship committee.
The Dante Alighieri Society of Denver annually awards scholarships to deserving college students to advance their study of Italian language, music, and art in Italy.
