Welcome to the Giangrande Family Scholarship Fund.
Begun in 2014, the Giangrande Family Fund awards $500 scholarships to Greater Lawrence MA students attending a tuition-based high school; a post-high school trade, vocational school or certificate program; or a 2 or 4 year college. Preference is given to young people who live in homes developed by Bread & Roses Housing, are participants or graduates of Si, Se Puede Lawrence, or are residents of the Lawrence Housing Authority.
The Giangrande Family Scholarship Fund is designed to help Lawrence area youth fulfill their dreams by supporting them as they pursue their education. An added goal is honoring students who are committed to improving others’ lives by generous acts of service, involvement in important community issues, and developing leadership skills for the benefit of all.
The Giangrande Family Scholarship Fund was created as a way of continuing the legacy of generosity of the children of John and Cecilia (Muollo) Giangrande. Growing up during challenging economic times, these seven siblings appreciated the power of a small kindness extended to them and the ability of an education to open doors to a brighter future.
