Since 1932, The Italian-American Mutual Aid Society of Aurora has maintained a strong commitment to the Aurora community through the support of numerous civic projects.
In 1995, the organization created a scholarship fund to benefit area students studying at the college or university level. In the awarding of scholarships from this fund, preference is given to applicants of Italian descent.
Pictured here are representatives of the Italian-American Mutual Aid Society who met in 1995 with the then president of the Foundation Albert D. McCoy (standing at far right) to finalize the terms of the scholarship.
