Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the George L. Graziadio Center for Italian Studies is able to offer several scholarships to support undergraduate and graduate study in Italian at CSULB. Scholarship funds are also available to participate in study abroad programs in Italy. While donor funds support the Italian Program in many ways, their impact is particularly powerful in the form of student scholarships. For years, many of our students have been able to continue their studies or go abroad for the very first time thanks to the availability of these funds.
