On June 13, 2012, the Dante Alighieri Society hosted its annual Pescosolido Scholarship Awards dinner.
Over the past years, 110 students have received a total of over $120.000 from the foundation.
“We are very pleased to have some of this years award recipients here in person tonight, although others have left already for their Summer Program in Italy, and some are being represented by their family,” said Lino Rullo, President Emeritus of the Dante Alighieri Society. “This year we awarded several scholarships. The decision, like the years before, was very difficult for the extremely high quality of the applicants.”
Every student received a $1,000 scholarship. This year’s recipients are:
- Joshua Brown – Salem State University
- Lisa D’Amore – University of Rhode Island
- Alicia Dart – University of Rhode Island
- Dominic Ferrante – Harvard University
- Victoria Ferrera – Tufts University
- Roberto Kalb – New England Convservatory of Music
- Grace Oberhofer – Tufts University
