The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council has announced its most recent UNICO Scholarship Awardee. For 2015-16 the recipient is Evan Bosio of North Canaan, CT. The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council administers a modest but meaningful grant program on behalf of the Torrington UNICO Scholarship Fund. This fund has enabled the Arts Council to direct funds to visual and performing art students and practitioners who are 25 years old or younger. The goal of the grant is to foster the talent and career development of Northwest Connecticut youth in all areas of the arts.
Evan Bosio, a recent graduate of Housatonic Valley Regional High School, has been awarded the Paolo Abate Mini Grant Arts Award of $600 through the Torrington UNICO Scholarship Fund towards his education at Berklee College of Music. In January, he will begin pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance.
The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council is supported in part by the DECD/Connecticut Office of the Arts, the Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut and the Connecticut Community Foundation.
