The Sons of Italy provides scholarships to worthy students at Parsippany High School and Parsippany Hills High School each year. Scholarships are awarded based on students scholastic achievement, school activity and community leadership. Strong consideration is given to students who demonstrate an interest in the Italian culture through their academic and community experiences.
