The Arts and Tourism Commission will award two $500 scholarships to assist any Waterbury resident who is a graduating high school senior and continuing their education beyond a high school level.

The purpose of the Arts and Tourism commission is the encouragement of activities which enrich the arts and cultural life of the citizens of Waterbury. The commission established an Arts Scholarship program for city high school students. This program requires that the student enter a formal institution after graduation and he/she continue study of his/her particular form of art throughout the school year that the grant is awarded. All completed scholarships are due by April 30, 2012.

Applications are available at your guidance counselor offices, or by email.  For more information call Lynnette Letsky- Piombo at 203-755-4462 or email at
