Did You Know?

The George L. Graziadio Center for Italian Studies recently received $100,000 in scholarship endowments to support the program’s new Master of Arts degree.

The first of two $50,000 gifts came from businessman Mario Giannini who set up a scholarship fund in 2012 named for his daughters, the Kyera and Nicole Giannini Scholarship Endowment. The second $50,000 gift was made by CSULB alumnus Mark Cangiano in the name of his late wife Sandy Salemi Cangiano and is specifically earmarked for graduate students.
