Dr. Saraco Scholarship for the Arts

The Saraco family wishes to offer a scholarship of $1,000 in memory of Dr. Gennaro (Jim) Saraco to be awarded to a student in Grade 12 within the community that is looking to pursue post-secondary education in the arts.

Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club played an integral part in formative years of Gennaro Saraco. As a new Canadian, the Club became a place for him to learn many skills such as swimming, math, and even english. As an adult, he fondly recalled his early years at the Club and frequently shared his many memories with a warm smile.

Although he was an educator for most of his life, Dr. Gennaro Saraco was innately creative and had a strong passion for the arts. He painted, wrote, and acted during his life - passions which he enjoyed and always encouraged in his children.In his memory, we look forward to giving back to the community that played such an integral role in who he was.


Applicants must be Dovercourt Clubhouse members and upon completion of application form - must submit their form and portfolio in person.
