LGBTQ Scholarship for Summer Study at Penland School of Crafts

Penland School of Crafts is an international center for craft education dedicated to helping people live creative lives. The school offers immersive workshops for adults in everything from clay and glass to weaving and wood. Penland is an intentionally inclusive and dynamic community, and we work hard to make our programs available to students with diverse educational, cultural, and life backgrounds through hundreds of annual scholarships.  

This year, we are excited to announce a new scholarship to strengthen the diversity of our student body. The LGBTQ Scholarship Award, funded by Jerry Jackson and Jeff Harris, will provide a special work-study scholarship for a summer workshop at Penland for a student living in North Carolina. Preference will be given to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) students. We hope that this award will enable a motivated student to take part in the discovery, hard work, creative connections, and personal and artistic growth that is Penland.  

The deadline for scholarship applications, including the LGBTQ Scholarship Award, is February 17. Please help us to share this opportunity with your students and members who might benefit from time at Penland to think and create.

Complete information about Penland’s scholarship program can be found at the link below. For further questions, please contact Amanda Hollifield, Penland Registrar, at 828-765-2359 ext. 1306.
