MORRISTOWN, NJ -- Morris Arts is offering two merit-based arts scholarships to students pursuing the arts. The scholarships are awarded annually to high school seniors who excel in the arts.

The Elaine Ehlers Arts Scholarship for $5,000 and The Eugenie Coladarci Arts Scholarship for $1,500 were created to recognize artistic excellence, encourage the artists of the future and celebrate the value of the arts to the human experience.

To qualify, students must be high school seniors who have exhibited artistic excellence in dance, drama, music or visual arts and plan to pursue postsecondary studies at an accredited institution or acknowledged arts school or fine arts program.
