Because of the economic and social impact of the COVID-19 virus, particularly on the Mott Foundation’s finances, the Foundation will not be awarding scholarships for this academic year. We deeply regret the necessity for this decision, but we found it absolutely necessary in order to safeguard our financial resources for the future. Thank you for applying and please apply again next year.


A Lasting Legacy
For millions of Italian Americans, the United States of America has offered a nearly unlimited bounty of freedom and opportunity.
Yet today, Calabria – ancestral home to more Italian Americans than any other single region of Italy – continues its struggle to uplift its economic fortunes. Fortunately, this effort will now be strengthened by the addition of a growing number of highly educated young men and women. Thanks to the hard work and vision of one of Calabria’s sons, John R. Mott, the deserving young people of Calabria are acquiring the skills and knowledge needed to develop the region’s untapped potential.

To date the Foundation has provided scholarships to almost 1,800 students!
