Since its conception in 1961, the CIBPA Foundation has distributed over 3.5 million dollars for the purpose of collecting money to support the education of young students of Italian origin in Quebec. Within the community, CIBPA’s bursary program is often touted as a true gem.
Mr Scalia says he is proud to lead the CIBPA Foundation into the future, while putting into place a bursary program that will offer students long-term support: “I am honoured to have been named President of the CIBPA Foundation. We are looking forward to reach new and higher levels that will benefit Italian-Canadian youth by giving them a better education”.
