CORVETTI ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP FUND

CORVETTI ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP FUND

In celebration of our 65th Anniversary, COSTI is pleased to announce the Corvetti Academic Scholarship Fund. The Fund is designed to recognize academic achievement and financial need by a newcomer who is under the age of thirty and enrolled in an accredited post-secondary institution. Two scholarships, up to a maximum of $3,000 each are available for 2017/18.

The Corvetti Academic Scholarship Award is named in honour of Panfilo Corvetti, the initiator and driving force behind COSTI’s education and employment programs. In naming the scholarship after him, the COSTI Board of Directors celebrates Panfilo Corvetti’s unique contribution to the agency’s mission, celebrating all immigrants and their children who have established themselves in this country and are now part of the fabric and greatness of Canada.

We invite undergraduate and graduate students to participate.
