The Fogolâr Furlan di Calgary is an association whose members originate from the culturally and linguistically unique region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in Northeastern Itay. The founding members of the Fogolâr Furlan di Calgary wanted a better life for themselves and for their children. They worked hard for the interests of their families and considered education as a means to achieve this outcome. Fittingly, the Fogolâr Furlan di Calgary has established this award to promote education and financially assist students who are studying Italian and pursuing post-secondary education. The award supports and recognizes high- achieving students in Italian 30 in Calgary’s high schools.
