The Board of Directors of the Segmented Woodturners have announced the availability of two scholarships for registration fees for the Segmented Woodturners Symposium coming up in October. These scholarships are valued at $250 each.
The puropse of these scholarships is:
- To increase educational resources to turners with a special interest in segmented woodturning who may otherwise not have the financial resources to attend the symposium.
- To make educational opportunities available to those who are willing to bring lessons learned back to the club level. A benefit of these efforts is a likely increase in our club membership as well as an increased interest in segmented woodturning.
Criteria for consideration should include a well defined plan for making use of the educational opportunity and how you will use it to promote segmented woodturning.
Members may nominate other members who have the need or desire to further their education and may not have the resources to do so. This should be done, however, with the knowledge of the applicant.
If you are a member of the Segmented Woodturners and would like to apply for yourself, or know someone who would not be able to attend otherwise, you can find the scholarship application on the Segmented Woodturner’s website.
