The Neil Velleca Sr. Scholarship is to honor the Connecticut Grand Lodge President who was responsible for the formation of the North Haven Sons and Daughters of Italy Lodge #2805.

The North Haven Sons & Daughters of Italy Lodge #2805 is proud to offer a yearly scholarship opportunity. Our Scholarship is to a high school senior student who is member, a child of a member, or a grandchild of a member, in good standing of our Lodge.

Our scholarship provides financial help for a High School Senior who is planning to further their education beyond high school.

Further education can be in the form of any pursuit towards any college degree or trade profession.  The Student must enroll full time, at any accredited University, College, or Trade School.

The intent of this Lodge scholarship is to reward the applicant and family for a connection to our Lodge as Members.

It’s our hope that all applicants and family will continue to be interested and participate in our Lodge.

The applicant’s involvement in his/her community, place of worship, and other organization’s will also be considered.  Involvement in learning and promoting our Italian culture is also a plus. A great Essay can be the final touch.

            The Scholarship Applications will be available after January 2021.
