The Italian American Women's Association handed out three scholarships to women going off to college Monday evening. The organization has been handing out scholarships for the last 21 years.

It's the first time the presentation is back in-person since before the pandemic, so the organization was excited to award scholarship funds to recipients face-to-face.
