Anthony Mascioli International Scholarship
Anthony Mascioli graduated from The College at Brockport magna cum laude in 1954 after pursuing an accelerated three-year program. At Brockport, he served as editor of Vistas, the College’s literary magazine, and directed the senior class play. After graduation, he attended Columbia University where he obtained a master’s degree in Drama. He began a business career to support himself in New York, and found success beyond his expectations. Although Mascioli aspired to write a great play, his financial achievements resulted in a lack of time.
Mascioli was a “colorful and charismatic entrepreneur who boldly celebrated being a gay man when it was not socially acceptable or safe,” according to the Rochester Out Alliance.
