Eugene D. Nesin Memorial Scholarship


Eugene Nesin

Eugene D. Nesin

The scholarship was established to honor the memory of Eugene Nesin, a one of a kind humanitarian, who served as a member of the Monticello Central School District Board of Education for 33 years until his passing in 2009.  Funds raised from our scholarship event held every October are awarded to local students in Grades K – 12.  It provides much needed financial support for music lessons in the Aspiring Young Musicians program and our Children’s Community Chorus in addition to other programs offered by Nesin Cultural Arts.  To date, we have awarded 17 scholarships to graduating seniors from Monticello High School pursuing studies in the arts and it currently serves well over 400 students in its programs all year.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the scholarship fund, please make your check payable to “Nesin Cultural Arts” and write “Nesin Scholarship” in the memo.  Please mail your donation to Nesin Cultural Arts, PO Box 249, Monticello,  NY 12701.
