Every year, ISDA gifts $150k in academic scholarships to our young adult members and children of members. We keep you informed of educational events taking place throughout the country as well as opportunities for studying the Italian culture and language.


Not only does ISDA offer domestic tours and trips abroad, but we also host a biennial national convention, bringing Italian Americans together for a week of festivities in some the nation’s top urban and resort destinations.

Charitable Service

ISDA strives to find service opportunities that not only help our fellow Italian Americans, but ethic communities that represent the new Americans of our country today. Through ISDA, you can join your local Italian American community to make a difference in the lives of others both near and far.
