This scholarship will provide an opportunity for anyone with an interest in ceramics who could benefit from the experience that a workshop at Peters Valley offers, as well as the financial assistance to make it possible. This scholarship will cover all workshop fees including tuition, studio/materials fee, lodging and meals for any ceramic workshop (based on availability).  To qualify, applicants must be at least 18 years old.

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 ceramic media.  


This very special scholarship is in honor of the dedication and hard work of Bruce Dehnert, our former Ceramic Studio Department Head. In his more than 22 years at Peters Valley, he guided and lent support to workshops, shared his incredible knowledge of the field and created a wonderful, welcoming environment for all. His guidance and mentorship of our workshop participants and notably our studio assistants has shaped careers and changed lives.

There is a $5 application fee for this scholarship.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
