Septemberfest Scholarship Fund

The Septemberfest Commission would like to invite all Bloomingdale residents and businesses to support the Septemberfest Scholarship Fund. This fund provides scholarships to Bloomingdale residents age 17 to 20. The award is funded through private, community and corporate contributions. 

The Joe Draghi Septemberfest Scholarship is being offered by the Septemberfest Commission with the addition of a trade school/vocational school Zaccardi Septemberfest Scholarship in 2022. Each year, the number of scholarships will vary, based and dependent upon total in the scholarship fund.

For the 2022 Septemberfest, scholarship applications must be postmarked no later than May 9, 2022.  Unfortunately, any application received after that date will not be considered. There will be a mandatory judge’s interview held on June 4, 2022 at 10 AM.
