Helping Our Future Generations 


Academic Scholarship

Athletic Scholarship

Vocational Scholarship

The Buon Tempo Club awards scholarships to deserving High School Seniors of Italian Heritage.  In the past 30 years, the club has given out hundreds of thousands of dollars in athletic, vocational, and academic scholarships to Italian-American youths in the Bay Area.
The 2024 Scholarship Season is underway. The Buon Tempo Club will be awarding a scholarship in academics, athletics, and vocational categories. In each category, a boy and girl of Italian descent will be awarded a scholarship, for a total of up to six scholarship awards.  Additionally, we will be awarding one deserving applicant the 

Bob Grazzini Scholarship Award.
This year the Board of Directors increased each of the awards. The Athletic, Academics, and Vocational Scholarship Awards have increased to $1,500.00 each and the Bob Grazzini Scholarship has been increased to $2,000.00.


Members who have students or know of someone eligible for any of the awards who meet our criteria are encouraged to have students apply ASAP.  Applications must be received by the Scholarship Committee no later than April 1st of each year.
