Each year, the members of the Marco Polo Lodge award scholarships to high school seniors for academic excellence. Awards are given to children and grandchildren of lodge members and locally to Levittown’s Division Avenue, Douglas MacArthur and Island Trees High Schools. Awards are given to both students in standard high school curriculums and Individual Education Programs.
Marco Polo Lodge no. 2214 Order of the Sons of Italy in America is located on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown.
