The Verve Arts Scholarship was created in honor of Thomas McDonough IV who was passionate about the fine arts. From an early age Tommy used drawing and painting to tell his stories and the stories of others around him. His work was rich in details and portrayed a certain honestly that held the eye of the viewer.

The Verve Arts Scholarship is an annual award given every Spring to a high school senior or current undergraduate student pursuing an arts degree at a 4-year college. Applicants should be NJ residents studying in the art of drawing, painting, photography, or graphic design.
