Huber-Weyer Youth Scholarships
Four full-tuition scholarships for high school students
Through the generosity of the Huber-Weyer Scholarship Fund, Peters Valley is pleased to be able to offer tuition scholarships to a very limited number of high school students. Applicants must be at least 17 years old
to be considered for adult workshops (18 for adult blacksmithing), but younger students can apply for one of the workshops offered for teens. These students will receive free tuition for a workshop of their choice during the summer workshop season. Recipients will be responsible for all other associated costs such as material fees and lodging (students under age 18 may not stay on campus unless accompanied by an adult) and/or meals. Peters Valley offers this opportunity to high school students so that they may learn new skills or enhance existing ones.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen by a panel of Peters Valley staff. The panel will review the applications and select those that reflect the strongest need and desire to further develop their skills and understanding of craft media. The panel will take into consideration the applicant's experience and the contents of the letter of intent. It is our hope that by taking a workshop at Peters Valley, the recipients will be inspired to develop their personal work and develop a life-long passion for craft.
