The Enrico Fermi Educational Fund of Yonkers is a non-profit organization that was founded nearly 60 years ago. It began as a vision of several individuals, led by Mr. Michael Vitulli, to generate financial support for Italian-American students who reside in Yonkers to further their education. This year $45,000 in scholarships were given to students who demonstrate outstanding commitment to academics and their communities.
