Alice Brown Memorial Scholarship 2018

Application Deadline: April 1, 2018 by Midnight CST

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. Recipients are typically responsible for transportation to the conference, although this year there may be travel funding available.

This year, the conference will be held in Decorah, Iowa, home to the Vesterheim, the National Norwegian-American Museum and Heritage Center.

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

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 will award two scholarships to cover the costs of attending our meeting in Decorah, Iowa from June 7 to 10.

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.
