Suffolk County Community College’s Dennisse Madrigal of Babylon has been named a recipient of the prestigious 2015 Programma Ponte Scholarship sponsored by the AIAE (Association of Italian American Educators) and will travel to Rome, Italy this June.

The Programma Ponte is a four-week program of study in Rome that offers a unique academic, cultural, and linguistic opportunity for exceptional students of Italian American heritage.

Dennisse, who is currently studying Intermediate Italian, will garner first-hand experience in Italy through course work, visits to important Italian and European institutions and direct contact with the Italian culture. Denisse will be expected to establish lasting connections and develop as a multi-cultural ambassador.

Dennisse will make a presentation about her experience in Italy to her fellow students next September.
