American Citizens for Italian Matters Scholarship Fund

Created in 1996 by members of American Citizens for Italian Matters, Inc. of Maryland, this fund provides support to a full-time undergraduate female student of Italian descent from the state of Maryland. In 2020, the ACIM added additional funding, donated by a beloved supporter of the ACIM mission, Elaine Mintzes, in honor of three ACIM members and women of Italian descent: Irene Piccinini, Marie DeRito and Mary Mangione.
