Cranston League for Cranston’s Future (CLCF) would like to honor current or former CLCF participants that have risen above the pack in civic responsibility, personal integrity, and community leadership. The Leo J. Castiglioni, Jr. Scholarship Fund is dedicated to the founder of CLCF. It has been established to assist graduating seniors as they make their way into the world beyond high school. These select graduates may use the funds to help defray the costs of post-high school education or the expense of purchasing tools for the trade of their choice in the world of work.
Leo J. Castiglioni, Jr. is one of the most honored citizens in Cranston’s history. Leo founded CLCF as a youth sports organization in 1953. He remained an active volunteer and member of the Board of Directors for the next fifty years until his death on July 11, 2002. Tens of thousands of children from Cranston have benefited from his dedication and service to the community.
Cranston residents who are graduating seniors at any public or private high school and who in the past have participated in any CLCF sport or activity may apply for this scholarship (see Award Criteria). There are no academic criteria, and future college attendance is not a requirement. The scholarship may be used to purchase tools of your chosen trade or for tuition to post-graduate schools.
