Third Street Music School Settlement announced last week the recipients of the inaugural New York Community Trust Harris Scholarships. The scholarships were made possible by the New York Community Trust's Charlotte Daniels Harris Memorial Fund, part of which was left to the Trust to be used for music scholarships. The Trust gave $120,000 to Third Street to provide five students with four-year college scholarships from 2014 through 2019.

“The New York Community Trust is proud to work with Third Street Music School to launch the Harris Scholarship,” said Kerry McCarthy, program officer at The Trust. “The scholarships recognize musical achievement, academic performance and community engagement.”

This year’s recipients, Third Street students Orion Doscher, 17, and Brendan Gittens, 17, will receive $5,000 per year to attend New York University and the State University of New York at Fredonia, respectively, beginning in fall 2014.
