Our mission is to inspire a life­long respect for crafts­man­ship and a passion for creat­ing by provid­ing a diverse, safe, and excel­lent wood­work­ing educa­tion for all.

All courses are now eligi­ble for schol­ar­ships. We are looking for indi­vid­u­als willing to help us with our goal of diver­si­fy­ing the field of fine wood­work­ing in North America. Our 2021 goal is to grant $50,000 worth of tuition schol­ar­ships and create more equi­table access to wood­work­ing educa­tion. Schol­ar­ships cover tuition only. Students are respon­si­ble for accom­mo­da­tions, meals, trans­porta­tion, mate­ri­als and regis­tra­tion fees. Select courses also require students to provide tools. Tool lists and mate­ri­als fees for non-inten­sives are listed within each course descrip­tion. Regis­tra­tion fees for non-inten­sives are $10, and $75 for inten­sives. Visit our Course Calen­dar to learn more about require­ments for each course.

Our Process:

We review and award schol­ar­ship appli­ca­tions quar­terly. Schol­ar­ship appli­ca­tion review is conducted by a Schol­ar­ship Commit­tee composed of board members, staff, faculty, alumni, and volunteers. 

The Schol­ar­ship Commit­tee will make award deci­sions guided by the following factors:

*Diver­sity — We will prior­i­tize appli­cants that repre­sent an under­served demo­graphic in the woodworking field.

*Econom­ics — We will prior­i­tize appli­cants that demon­strate an economic need for assistance.
