The Order Sons of Italy Garibaldi Lodge is involved in a few scholarship programs. The first three listed are administered by the Lodge, and the U of M scholarship is administered in coordination with the University of Manitoba.
The Lodge annually awards two scholarships of $2,000 each to students of Italian origin entering post-secondary education. We have presented over 20 scholarships to date. The criteria for the award include academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, involvement in the Italian and wider community, and need.
