ECCF’S FAMILY OF FUNDS
giangrande family scholarship fund
The Giangrande Family Scholarship Fund (GFSF) is designed to support Lawrence MA youth as they pursue their education.
The Giangrande Family Scholarship Fund (GFSF) honors students who show academic promise and are committed to improving others’ lives by generous acts of service and involvement in important community issues.
GFSF awards $500 scholarships to students attending a tuition-based high school; a post-high school vocational 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 current participants or graduates of Si, Se Puede Lawrence, or are residents of the Lawrence Housing Authority.
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.
