Each year the UNICO Kansas City Chapter sponsors a number of events to raise money to fund scholarships for local high school graduates. Events include the UNICO Microbrew Festival, Kansas City Ethnic Festival and Festa Italiana, the largest fundraiser of the year. Scholarship recipients are honored each year at this event.
In 2011 and 2012, at Festa Italiana, UNICO gave out over $50,000 in scholarships to local high school students. Scholarships were awarded based on academic achievement and the display of UNICO values.
2013 Scholarship Applications are due March 1, 2013. Scholarship winners will be announced at Festa Italiana.
