Italian-American Organizations

The Italian-American Organizations have a fundamental role in the preservation of the Italian cultural heritage in the United States, in maintaining the connection of Americans of Italian descent with the homeland, and in the promotion and diffusion of the Italian language. The Italian-American Organizations played an indispensable role in the reestablishment of the Italian AP exam, thanks to the generous contributions provided.  These donations also support numerous scholarships, allowing American students to travel to Italy. Check their websites for further information about scholarships and other initiatives promoting Italian Language and Culture.
