If you are an AAW Member you should be aware of a number of grants that are available. If you qualify for any of these grants you can apply on line at woodturner.org.
The following grants are available:
- **Educational Opportunity Grant (EOG) Financial Grants – Awards to individuals (adults and students), chapters, and other woodturning-related associations.
- Educational Opportunity Grant (EOG) Lathe & Equipment Grants – Packages contain: Jet Mini Lathe (non-variable speed), set of Crown tools, tool package (to be determined), Nova chuck, and a faceshield.
- Symposium Grants
- Professional Outreach Program (POP) Fellowship Grants
- WIT Women/Other Underrepresented Populations Events & Exhibitions Grant
- ***WIT Membership Grants for Women
- Membership Grants for Accredited Teachers
** To the best of my understanding this grant replaces the former AAW Scholarship program where any chapter could nominate one or more (dependent on chapter size) individuals once a year to be considered for a scholarship to either John C Campbell Folk School or to The Arrowmont School.
***The WIT Membership Grant requires that a MAWT Board Member submit the application. Contact me if you are interested.
