Lawrence J. Pizzano Scholarship

The Lawrence J. Pizzano Memorial Scholarship pays tribute to Larry, a young man who left us much too soon, but who taught us what it means to put others before oneself, to give without thought of personal gain. 

An active member of our campus community, Larry combined his academic pursuits with service to others through participation in Lambda Sigma and by tutoring his peers.  He also expressed his personal interests in his guitar playing and through his WSBK radio show.  Most of all, Larry brought us joy with his smile and his generous spirit. This memorial scholarship celebrates Larry’s life and applauds a student who exemplifies Larry’s values.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time and have a overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Qualified applicants must also make active use of the service provided by disabilities services – Banacos Academic Center, and provide a 500-1000 word essay detailing how they reflect Larry’s values in their daily life.
