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, the Thomas Lie-Nielsen Scholarship Fund, and our scholarship endowment.

 

Workshop Scholarships

In 2021 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.
