The Mario Lanza Institute, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, honors the memory of the late, great singer by sponsoring scholarships to promising young singers to further their training and careers. More than 200 scholarships have been awarded and many of the recipients have gone on to perform at major opera houses.
The scholarships are awarded to winners of an annual competition. Vocal auditions are held in October. In November, a Mario Lanza Institute announces the winners at the annual Ball.
The Institute also houses a museum featuring photos and artifacts related to Mario Lanza. Holdings include clothing worn by Mario, original movie posters, boxing gloves he used in his youth, and some of his gold records
