The Joseph Scacalossi Scholarship deadline for preliminary applications are due no later than March 20, 2015 The Scacalossi Scholarship has helped students since 1988, when it was founded as a tribute to a state Department of Labor member who helped form PEF and fought for the rights of his members in Manhattan.
Every year, 10 students are each awarded $1,000 annually for four years.
The student must be a child, stepchild or ward of an active, retired or deceased PEF member and is open to high school seniors and college freshmen.
