High School Art Scholarship

Each year the Art Advisory Committee presents a number of Millburn High School Senior and Junior AP Art Students with merit scholarships. 

The committee views every AP junior and seniors student’s portfolio and selects those that contain not only impressive individual pieces, but demonstrate an overall progression and high achievement. Winners are encouraged to remember their artistic roots in Millburn Township and previous winners return to share their stories and receive continued support from the committee. 

The 2020 Scholarship winners have been announced. Visit the Art Advisory Committee web page to view the winners and their works: Art Advisory Committee Announces 2020 High School Art Scholarship Award Winners
