In line with our mission to promote Italian language and culture, the Italian Cultural Center has been committed to funding student scholarships since 2014. These scholarships are specifically created for Minnesota residents in cooperation with top Minnesota colleges and institutions. Our scholarships offer a way for their recipients to offset expenses for Italian language classes and/or studying in Italy. These scholarships may vary from year to year and are subject to eligibility requirements. Please refer to each program for additional information.

This year’s scholarship was awarded to Samantha Tuschman.

Samantha is a junior at the University of Minnesota where she is a double-major in Italian Studies and Global Studies, with a concentration in political economy and environmental change.

She will attend the University of Bologna where she will focus on Italian history while interacting with native Italian students. She is keenly interested in topics such as immigration and climate change and how they affect Italy and Europe in general.

We congratulate Samantha and look forward to reading about her learning adventures in Italy!
