Our 2020 Scholarship Recipients

The Society of Italian American Businessmen would like to congratulate our 2020 scholarship winners. Each winner exemplified our scholarship core values of academics, leadership, and community involvement. This year the SIAB had seven scholarships available totalling $26,000 rewarding local students for their achievements.

The 2020 SIAB Scholarships were a huge success despite the COVID-19 restrictions. In lieu of our annual SIAB scholarship dinner event, we met with each of our 2020 winners individually with their families at some local Harford County restaurants. I would like to thank the staff of Enotria, La Cucina, Liberatore’s, and the Main Street Tower for graciously hosting our scholarship meetings. I would also like to thank our partner Harford Community College for helping us with our selection process.

We look forward to continuing our support of local students this spring with our 2021 scholarship awards.
