Congratulations to Nicholas Cudini, Gabriella von Esmarch, and Simon Lanzoni the three recipients of the 2021 Vari Italian Studies Fellowship!

Vari Italian Studies Fellows exemplify the best of a Jesuit education and receive awards for meaningful personalized learning opportunities such as faculty-mentored research assistantships, and mentored community-based internships. These awards are to support outstanding Italian Studies students at SCU. This initiative at SCU is generously supported by Dr. Victor and Julia Botto Vari.
