SPSCA 2023 Scholarship Recipients Announced

In February 2023, SPSCA solicited applications from our members for scholarships to the University for Foreigners in Perugia. And we were delighted to have had an amazing pool – and record number – of scholarship applications this year. The passion expressed for Italian language and culture, and experiencing Perugia, made the selection process very challenging. Our four recipients were all very enthusiastic and demonstrated an interest in, and commitment to, advancing their Italian language skills. They all also exhibited a strong desire to immerse themselves in the culture, and experience what Perugia and the region of Umbria have to offer. In addition, they presented their own personal and compelling commitment to support our organization’s ongoing mission.

Congratulations to our 2023 scholars who will have the opportunity for one month of study at the Universita’ per Stranieri in Perugia: Rebecca Albiani, Heather Battaglia, Emma Craig, and Winson Law. Throughout the year we will report on their individual experiences on our social platforms and in future newsletters. We extend a special thanks to Emanuele Bizzarri and Caffe Umbria for their long-time support and commitment to this program, and to our organization. We are also grateful to the Universita’ per Stranieri for their collaboration and partnership in making this opportunity available through the scholarships they provide to us.

We thank all of you who applied and encourage you – and all our members – to participate in La Tavola Italiana Virtuale to continue your language practice, participate in our events, become involved in our organization, and/or apply next year for a scholarship.
