MORRISTOWN, NJ - Morris Arts is offering two merit-based arts scholarships to students pursuing the arts. The scholarships are awarded annually to graduating 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 to celebrate the value of the arts to the human experience.

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