Scholarship Information

2022 Scholarship Info:

As we have done for the past thirty-five years, the Dante Alighieri Society of Denver, Colorado will be awarding scholarships to college students who are studying Italian language, culture, history or music in institutions in the Denver metropolitan area and in northeastern Colorado.  These scholarships are to be used in approved study-abroad programs in Italy.

Applications are now available on-line at our website, www.dantealighieriofdenver.com where they can be filled and submitted electronically. Completed applications, along with all supporting documentation, must be received no later than April 2, 2022 to be considered for grants.

Applications will be evaluated by the Scholarship Committee and winners will be notified on Saturday April 16, 2022.  The values of the scholarships depend upon the number and the quality of the applicants.  Grants will be awarded to the winners on May 1, 2022 at the Society’s annual Scholarship Luncheon.

2021 Award Recipients

On Sunday, May 2, 2021, the annual Awards Luncheon took place at the Mount Vernon Canyon Club.  The nearly eighty people in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to interact with our award winners, an entertaining musical performance by Angela Mendez, a prominent actress and singer in the Denver area, and a sumptuous meal.  A heartfelt “Thank You” goes to all who have contributed to the Dante Scholarship Fund.  This most important part of the Society could not continue without your support.
