Scholarship Opportunities

The Olympia Weavers Guild offers a number of supportive scholarship opportunities for short term or long term learning directions. With the upcoming guild workshops scheduled, you may want to consider applying for one of the Educational Grants for up to $300 to be used in specific study situations.

There is also an Enrichment grant of $500 – $1000 intent on supporting an individual members intensive study. The applicant for this grant develops an outline of the work to be pursued which is evaluated by an outside resource member of our fiber arts community. The deadline for submitting this application is April 1st.

The application forms are on this website and help is available to go through the process. Contact Lana Schneider for more information.
