Scholarships

2011 Scholarship recipient Hillary Ritt

 

Scholarships encourage the participation of talented individuals who could not otherwise afford to attend our courses. They are funded by private gifts, the Au Pair General Scholarship Fund to encourage women in woodworking, the Ben V. Branscom Scholarship Fund, and our scholarship endowment.

Workshop Scholarships

In 2016 we will award approximately 18 scholarships for one-week and two-week workshops. These scholarships generally cover the full cost of tuition, but successful applicants must confirm their participation by paying the standard $80 registration fee, and remain responsible for the costs of their own travel, lodging, meals, materials, and any supply fees.

To apply, please submit the following by April 1, 2016.

  1. A letter explaining your qualifications, your financial need, and the benefit you hope to get from the course

  2. Your resumé

  3. A list of up to three workshops you would like to attend, in order of preference

  4. Up to five images of any woodworking or art work you have done previously

  5. The names and telephone numbers of three references
