Welcome to this year’s Vito J. Pitta Scholarship Program Competition.
We would like to take this opportunity to explain to you the selection process for this award.
This scholarship program is a competition. Qualified applicants are competing with all the others that apply this year. The Union, the Employers and the Scholarship Fund have no say at all in the determination of the winners. An independent selection committee of academic professionals, who are appointed by the Board of Trustees, selects the winners of the competition. They select scholarship winners based on academic ability, financial need and future promise.
If you work in a hotel, casino or club covered by the NYC Hotel Trades Council and have a child who is a graduating high school senior and is planning to attend a four year college or university this fall, please complete the Eligibility Application Form and submit it to the Scholarship Fund office either in person or by e-mail or postal mail. You will immediately be contacted by the office to let you know if your child is eligible to compete. If so, your child will receive an application packet and given all necessary instructions. There is a deadline, so fill out the Eligibility Information Form right away!
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you work at a Division A hotel, please note that your scholarship competition is separate. For further information, please contact Jerry Sammartino at your Local 6 Division A department at 212 492-2136.
