Guild Scholarship Opportunities

The June issue of The Template includes a report from Sue Dennis, a recipient of the Guild Scholarship in 2006. Sue attended a Studio Art Quilts Associates conference in the United States in May 2007 and she refers to these websites in her report:

  • SAQA is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development and documentation;
  • Jeri Riggs who kindly hosted Sue before the conference;
  • Fiber Revolution, a Manhattan Quilters Guild; and
  • Technology Wise Investments for Your Art with Lisa Chipetine
Members who are either highly skilled or in early stages of developing quilting expertise are encouraged to apply for a scholarship. The Guild’s scholarship program has provision to distribute financial support to one or more members during 2008/09. A maximum of $5,000 per annum is available to be shared between two or more successful applicants; maximum to any single applicant is $3,000. Consideration will be given to submissions from individuals or groups with continuous Guild membership of at least three (3) years. Written applications need to be sent (hard copy) to the Vice President at the Guild office address by Friday 29 August 2008. The information that must be included in any application is substantially the same as for 2008. See this blog post or download this flyer for more information.
