In 2003, Circle Craft Co-Operative initiated a student scholarship award program to support new and upcoming craftspeople. This program is part of Circle Craft’s commitment to community outreach programming, working in partnership with four BC institutions; Emily Carr University, Ceramics; Capilano University, Textile Arts Program; Vancouver Community College, Jewellery Program; and the Kootenay School of the Arts, Metal Program.
Graduating students from these programs are invited to complete an application to be considered for the award. A selection committee from each department works in co-operation with Circle Craft to select each year’s recipients. Selection is based on outstanding achievement and an intent to pursue their art form professionally or through furthering their studies. Contact your department head for more information.
