The Penland School of Crafts is located in the mountains of Western Carolina and offers intensive two-week workshops in a variety of media throughout the summer. The winner of this scholarship receives funding to attend the workshop of her/his choice. Housing and meals are included. This award was created by the Penland School to support artists who otherwise could not afford to attend a workshop. Students receiving financial aid may apply. Students not receiving financial aid may apply by including a statement explaining why they could not afford to attend a workshop without this assistance. In their deliberations, the faculty will consider the seriousness students have demonstrated in their course work.
