WOMEN AND TEXTILES: A PATH TO PEACE
SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND ANNUAL MEETING
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
Weave a Real Peace (WARP) is an international organization based in the United States. Its mission is to foster a global network of enthusiasts who value the importance of textiles to grassroots economies. Members include artisans, academics, wholesalers, retailers, tour operators, designers, teachers, and others, united by a love of textiles and a desire to promote and preserve textiles and other traditional crafts.
Each year, WARP hosts a conference. This year it will be held June 20-23 at the Georgetown Conference Center in Washington, DC. Thanks to the generosity of former WARP member, Alice Brown, WARP is offering two memorial scholarships for students and fiber artists 35 years or younger to attend our annual meeting. This is a great opportunity for early career individuals to be impacted by what WARP has to offer. In addition to connecting with WARP members, scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to give a presentation about their work and how it relates to WARP's values.
Scholarships cover conference registration and housing fees. Recipients are responsible for transportation to the conference.
The application deadline is March 31, 2019.
The application can be found online at weavearealpeace.org/warp_scholarship/. Applicants can complete and submit the form digitally.
Please help spread the word about the scholarship to interested young people and professors, especially in the East coast region! I have attached a flyer for physical posting.
