Scholarship Criteria:

One or more scholarship will be offered to students at the local schools (high school or college) each year, up to  $1,000.

The Chairperson is charged with notifying the local schools of the scholarship.  The committee reviews all applications received and brings recommendations to a subsequent Board meeting.  


1.  The applicant's interest is to further their education.

2.  This is a textile project-based award. Textiles include fabrics, yarn, or other fiber based materials. This fiber arts project may be a class or group project, or one done on your own. For example, projects might use quilting, sewing, weaving and/or knitting, in their construction and might be a quilt, a garment, an art project or something else that fits the criteria.

3.  Applicant will present the project to the Foothill Quilters Guild at a regular meeting.

4.  Included in application:

 If you know of a young person who fits these criteria, make sure they know about our scholarship. Consider mentoring someone yourself to get a young person involved in the delights of sewing and quilting.
