Anyone living in New Hampshire or within ten miles of its border is eligible to receive a Vivika and Otto Heino Craft Education Scholarship. The League is interested in supporting individuals who participate in educational activities within its system of retail galleries and councils that present creative approaches to learning such as classes, workshops, courses, seminars, or other activities designed to:

  • Develop a personal interest in a craft discipline
  • Improve personal understanding of a craft-related topic such as design or aesthetics
  • Advance a skill or learn a new technique in a craft medium
  • Enhance individual creativity

The following list describes examples of ineligible activities:

  • Travel to fairs
  • Travel for business purposes other than to attend a course or seminar
  • Seminars and courses on topics which are not related to craft

Application Deadlines

Applications for scholarships are accepted at anytime at League Headquarters.
