Alice Brown Memorial Scholarship 2017 Application Deadline:

The Alice Brown Memorial Scholarship assists applicants ages 35 and under to attend the WARP Annual Meeting.  Preference is given to students or recent graduates, but those pursuing non-traditional career paths related to WARP’s mission are also encouraged to apply. The scholarship covers conference attendance, and room and board. Travel expenses are the responsibility of recipients.

Strong applications will demonstrate the applicant’s interest in WARP’s mission of fostering a global network of enthusiasts who value the importance of textiles. For more information about WARP’s core values, please visit weavearealpeace.org/about. Click here to go to the application, and join us in creating a connected textile community!

Application Deadline: March 31, 2017 by Midnight, CST
Applications will be reviewed & the scholarship committee will notify applicants by mid-April.  With questions, please contact Kelsey Wiskirchen at kelsey.viola.wiskirchen@gmail.com

Alice Brown was a generous WARP member who had the foresight to donate the funds to establish the scholarship. Now, other members are helping to make the fund both sustainable and greater in scope. Those of you who have attended meetings since 2008 know how much these special young people have added to the event.  This year we hope to award two scholarships to cover the costs of attending our meeting in Oaxaca, Mexico from June 8 to 11.  Since our scholarship does not cover travel expenses, candidates from Mexico or the US Southwest may be especially interested in applying this year.

Please also help by spreading the word that it is time to apply again!  Word of mouth by the WARP membership has proven to be the best way to publicize our scholarship program.
