    This is dedicated to out-of-state students and valued between $2,000 - $6,000 per year based on student's GPA and test scores, and it is renewable.
    NEED Leadership Scholarship
    Each year NEED awards five (5) $5,000 Leadership Scholarships to deserving African American graduating high school seniors.  The scholarships will be paid out over four years in annual disbursements of $1,250.

    While in the past years NEED has been “Bridging the Gap” and “Lighting the Way,” this year we are proud to be “Building On Our Legacy.”

    While NEED comes from a historical background of struggle and turbulent times, the organization has developed a legacy that includes valuable college and career access for our region’s youth, as well as powerful mentoring and workforce diversity programs and an established educational tour to Historically Black Colleges and Universities. NEED has seen remarkable growth in our efforts to address many of the barriers to higher education through the growth of these programs and services. We have plans to expand these programs further to reach even more students as we continue to Build On Our Legacy for years to come. NEED has done so much for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything.

    As reported by Kathleen and Grant Oliphant back in April 2010, there is a quiet force at work every day making the Pittsburgh region a better place. Its achievements have touched and transformed countless lives.  The NEED organization would like to think we are among one of the many nonprofit organizations making a difference.

    National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame

    The National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to preserving and promoting the history and heritage of Italian Americans in sports by honoring Italian American heroes who have made lasting contributions to sports and society. Since its founding in 1977, more than two hundred glorious champions of sport have been enshrined in the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame.

    The Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 1986. Since then, the chapter has inducted nearly 100 Italian Americans athletes from the greater Pittsburgh region. Some are nationally-known professional athletes; others are amateurs who made their impact on the local sporting scene. The inductees represent a wide array of sports including baseball, football, boxing, soccer, and auto racing.

    Each year, the Pittsburgh chapter also gives out achievement awards to outstanding individuals in the community and issues scholarships to exceptional students in financial need.

    Last April, during a ceremony at the Westin Convention Center Hotel, the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame (NIASHF) awarded individual scholarships of $4,000 to four very deserving 2017 high school seniors.

    In the last 31 years, the NIASHF has awarded scholarships to more than 140 Western Pennsylvania high school seniors.
