We believe that craft education should be accessible to anyone with an interest in learning.

The North House Folk School Scholarship fund has been made available through the donations of generous supporters who want to make courses available to all. While anyone with financial need is welcome to apply, the goals of the scholarship program are as follows (in no particular order): to increase the diversity of age and race in our student body; to offer opportunities to local residents of Cook County and Grand Portage, MN; to support the learning of those with professional aspirations in a particular craft area; and to make our programming available to those with financial need.

Scholarship applications for September-December 2023 courses will open June 8. Check back here to access the link on June 8. Applications will be open for one month - closing at Noon on July 7. 

Scholarships are available at three levels. 

 - Half: half of tuition and materials.
 - Full: full amount of tuition and materials.
 - Full+: full amount of tuition and materials and $50 per course day to offset housing/transportation costs.

What to know about the application review and when you'll hear back:
Once applications close, a week's time is typical for review by committee. Applicants will hear back within two weeks of the deadline. 

Any award is pending scholarship funds being made available: if their application is not funded, the applicant will be notified and their registration will be cancelled.
An individual may receive one scholarship per year maximum. The amount of funding available per year will vary, and is determined by the Board of Directors through the budgeting process.
