Peters Valley will offer tuition scholarships to a limited number of art educators. These educators will receive 50% off of tuition for a workshop of their choice in 2024. Recipients will be responsible for all other associated costs such as the balance of tuition, material fees and room and board if needed (lunches are included). Peters Valley offers this opportunity in an effort to encourage art teachers to 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. While we feel it is important that the applicant show active involvement in their field outside the classroom, we also feel that a strong desire to enhance their school program and learn by doing is equally important. It is our hope that by taking a workshop at Peters Valley the recipients will be inspired to grow creatively in their personal work and pass information along to their students.
Applications are accepted throughout the workshop season, with no deadline to apply.
There is a $5 application fee for this scholarship.
