Black Forest Arts & Crafts Guild Scholarship

The purpose of the Black Forest Arts & Crafts Guild Scholarship is to provide financial assistance toward higher education for students living in the Black Forest area who demonstrate academic competence, aptitude, community involvement, and school participation.

The Black Forest Arts & Crafts Guild Scholarship was created in 2006 and is awarded annually to a graduating senior(s) attending a high school (public, private, charter, or home school).  Applicants must physically reside within the boundaries as defined later within this application.

Eligible students must have been accepted, or intend to enroll in an accredited college, university, trade school, or other institution of higher education by the fall of 2022.

The Black Forest Arts & Crafts Guild was established in 1964 and is the longest, continuously running Craft Guild West of the Mississippi River.  It consists of local artists and crafters who annually donate to groups, and individuals that enhance the Black Forest community.  Members of the Guild, the local community, and patrons of our Spring and Fall Craft Shows fund the scholarship.

All qualified applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee which is comprised of members of the Guild.

If interested:  Please Download the scholarship application, complete it, and submit it NO LATER THAN midnight Saturday, April 30, 2022.

 

Late applications will NOT be accepted.

Submittal instructions can be found in the form.

Sincerely,

Black Forest Arts & Crafts Guild
