A scholarship that aims to support first and second-generation Canadians has reached its first milestone on its way to its $40,000 goal.
The Addolorata De Luca Leadership Scholarship announced recently it had raised $25,000.
Cessidia DeBiasio, scholarship founder and University of Windsor BSW and BComm graduate, said the scholarship provides $1,000 to a student every year and is selected by the University of Windsor’s Student Award and Financial Aid committee.
“The ADL Scholarship is all about giving back to the next generation of student leaders at the University of Windsor,” DeBiasio said.
“It also helps to recognize and honour all of the sacrifices that our ancestors endured when they first came to Canada.”
