Since 1971, Monmouth Arts has been committed to celebrating youth in the arts. Celebrating young artists and their work is necessary in order to inspire the next generation of artists in our world. As a community of artists and arts supporters, Monmouth Arts continues to invest in our young artists and their education

 

Each year, Monmouth Arts presents young arts students college scholarships through our Emerging Artist Scholarship Program. The program will award $500 scholarships to two deserving Monmouth County high school seniors who are committed to pursuing the arts in higher education. The scholarships are sponsored by Showcase Arts Foundation, Inc., the East Coast USA Pageant, and the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation.
