Scholarships

Background

The Guild offers scholarship opportunities for new fiber enthusiasts as well as those who have been involved in the craft for a long time. Financial assistance is available for individuals or groups interested in pursuing knowledge that will enrich the fiber arts community. There are two sources for these funds: the Margaret Carr fund and Horace Lethbridge fund. Carr scholarships are for members only and recipients are required to share the knowledge gained from their study. Lethbridge scholarships do not have these restrictions.

How it Works

Scholarship awards are intended to enhance one’s education in textile arts and may be applied to course fees and some related expenses at most learning venues. Funds are not available for lodging, meals or travel expenses. The maximum award is $550 per application.

Scholarship recipients are encouraged to share their study experience. There are many ways that this can be done. Past recipients have provided demonstrations, compiled a resource notebook, given a lecture or worked on a Guild committee.
