Cesare and Ida Sclarandis Fund

The Cesare and Ida Sclarandis Fund was established in 2007 by alumna Aubrey Sclarandis (B.S.W. ’08, M.S.W. ’10) with help from her parents, Mario and Tina Sclarandis, and in honor of her grandparents, Cesare and Ida Sclarandis.

The scholarship was created to support the Community Service Alliance (CSA) initiative within the School of Social Work through scholarship opportunities, student internship opportunities, or the purchase of materials for CSA-related projects. This scholarship has a goal to culturally enrich learning experiences that will enhance future social work careers in the multidisciplinary area of cultural and systemic issues, including health, education, development, and domestic and global learning opportunities. Culturally enriching learning experiences include, but are not limited to, domestic and international service trips and study abroad opportunities.

This scholarship is for full- or part-time B.S.W. or M.S.W. students, who demonstrate interest in cultural and systemic issues related to social work practice.
