Quilting Skills Development Award
The Guild Board will maintain and manage a scholarship/award fund for Centre Pieces Quilt Guild sponsored workshops. The scholarship is to cover only the registration workshop or class fee. Pattern fees or items to be purchased from a supply list are the responsibility of the applicant.
Guild members in good standing who have registered for a workshop may apply for the award by filling out chance slips available from the Vice President or Treasurer. The chance slip will contain contact information only. Applicants give permission to the Guild to use their name and project picture for publicity purposes unless the member specifically requests to remain anonymous.
If a member in good standing would like to attend the workshop but cannot afford the workshop fee, the member should talk privately to the Vice President or Treasurer about the scholarship. The Vice President and Treasurer have the discretion to award the funds in this instance. This conversation will be kept in the strictest confidence.
The amount of money that is available for scholarship/award is determined by the amount the Board agrees to put into the annual budget for this purpose. The budgeted amount will include donations made by individuals for this purpose. Once the budget is determined, it is at the discretion of the Quilting Skills Development Award committee to grant the scholarship/award within the available funds.
Applicants must be in good standing of the Guild. (i.e. having paid their dues.) A member may be granted this scholarship/award once per Guild fiscal year. The Quilting Skills Development Award committee will consist of the Vice President, Treasurer and one other Guild member, not on the Board. If award has not been accepted by a member on a basis of need the award winner will be drawn not less than 2 weeks prior to the workshop by a disinterested person.
