Scotch Plains-Fanwood UNICO Memorial Scholarship

** Please visit our page again in December 2022 for 2023 scholarship information. Below information will be updated at that time**

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Chapter of UNICO is dedicated to helping area students maximize their talent and potential through educational pursuits. Over the past 40 years, since our chapter has formed, we have distributed over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarship awards.

  • This year the chapter is offering four (4) $2,500 scholarships to high school seniors who are of verifiable Italian heritage.
  • Children of SP-F UNICO members in good standing have no residency requirements to be considered for an award.
  • Children of Non-SP-F UNICANS must reside in Scotch Plains or Fanwood.
  • Applicants may attend a school outside of Scotch Plains or Fanwood to be considered for an award.

Scholarship winners are selected by the general membership of Scotch Plains-Fanwood UNICO. Awards are based on a combination of financial need, academic excellence, SAT/ACT scores, extracurricular activity and civic involvement. Scholarships will be applied only to the first year of study at an accredited college/university or post-secondary vocational/technical school. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the educational institution, not to exceed the charges remaining after considering all other scholarships/grants. A detailed Bursar’s invoice and documentation of expenses are required prior to disbursement of funds.

  • Applicants must submit the completed and signed application by March 1st, 2023 to spfunico@gmail.com.
  • Applicants are to request the Counseling Office to forward a copy of their transcript including SAT or ACT scores (if applicable) to the Committee on or before March 1st, 2023.
