Many Italian Americans have much to be proud of. In pursuit of the American Dream with sometimes just the clothes on their backs, these brave immigrants arrived in a new country with determination to succeed. They made great sacrifices as they put in hour after hour working to improve their lives, and in turn, their families’ lives as well. Only a few generations after their arrival, the descendants of those early arrivals are doctors, lawyers, teachers, and politicians, to name a few. The John R. Mott Scholarship Foundation works to give back to the region in Italy where its namesake, John R. Mott, was born, and from which he and his parents emigrated. In honor of these Italian Americans, the Foundation awards the Mott Foundation Scholarships to high-achieving students native to the Calabria region. If you qualify, apply now, amici!
