We are delighted to announce that the Scholarship Committee has selected our new class of GOTO Scholars. Twenty-seven qualified students from 14 different NYC schools applied for our scholarship, and we had the difficult task of choosing 10 from the applicant pool to join our 20 returning scholars.
According to Scholarship Committee Chair Jon Giaramita, this was the toughest selection cycle to date. All of our new GOTO Scholars have a keen interest in the arts and the motivation to develop their interest. Through phone conversations, unique essays, and interactions at the information session, each student touched the heart of the GOTO volunteers.
