 The three categories are as follows: 

Post Graduate – up to 30 years of age Scholarship 

Post Graduate – over 30 Scholarship 

Post Graduate Education Scholarship (significant experience within the education sector required) 

All applicants should have studied the practice of embroidery or stitched textiles through formal or informal learning.  In addition, applicants for the Education Scholarship should have significant experience within the education sector. 

The Scholarships are to support students and tutors to undertake projects which further their own practice.  Working with the Embroiderers’ Guild during the Scholarship year will provide each Scholar with opportunities to be introduced to the Guild’s network of members, branches and practising professionals. Plus the Education Scholar must be prepared, in association with the Embroiderers’ Guild, to take an active role in the promotion of embroidery in schools.
