Fine Woodworking and Furniture Students: Scholarship Funded by Powermatic

Win Money to Hone Your Craft

Powermatic, a leading woodworking tool manufacturer, has donated funds to create the Powermatic Student Workshop Scholarships sponsored by The Furniture Society. Up for grabs is the cost of tuition at five of the most prestigious furniture workshops in the nation: North Bennett Street School, Penland School of Crafts, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. Scholarships cover tuition, accommodations, food and partial travel expenses. Workshops will be held during summer 2008.

How it works:

You choose the school you’d like to attend (workshops only) and the length of session. The schools are all located in different regions of the country to make them accessible to students nationwide. Workshop sessions usually run from one week to eight weeks. You may apply for more than one workshop, but it must be at a different school and you must complete a separate application for each.

Eligibility Rules:

  • Current full-time enrollment in a formal woodworking or apprenticeship program.
  • Must hold current membership in The Furniture Society or become a new member when applying for the scholarship.
  • Applications must contain photos of work and a professional resume.

Five scholarships will be awarded in Spring 2008. Each award will be worth between $2,000 and $3,000. You must download the application and mail it in with all required attachments.

Deadline for Powermatic Student Workshop Scholarship applications:

Packets must be postmarked by February 1, 2008.
