Scholarships

Scholarships are available for attending the 2017 Midwest Weavers Conference.
Three of the scholarships include conference registration fees, room, and board. The Jack Baker Memorial Scholarship, which honors the memory of a long‐time friend and board member of MWA, is given to a weaver with less than five years experience. The other two all‐ inclusive awards will be given to applicants who demonstrate financial need. Several scholarships that cover only the conference registration fee will also be awarded.

To apply, submit a letter that explains the role weaving plays in your life and why you would like to attend the Midwest Weavers' Conference. Please indicate for which of the scholarships you are applying, and be sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email address. Previous scholarship awardees are not eligible.

Application deadline is February 1, 2017. Your application for Textiles at the Crossroads will be accepted from now until 2/1/2017. Awardees will be notified March 1st, 2017.

Send your application letter by mail (or email) to:
