Scholarships

Baltimore Clayworks goal in providing scholarship opportunities is to improve the diversity of our student body and remove economic barriers to class enrollment. Applicants will be selected by lottery and awarded a choice of one class, workshop or camp at our Mt. Washington campus.

General Scholarship

The Baltimore Clayworks Scholarship Fund was established in 1996 upon receipt of a generous gift from the Lipitz Foundation. It has since been sustained by funds donated by friends and families in memory of Clayworks artist Andrew Brunelle and Jan Rattenbury, and through ongoing individual donations.

A committee chosen by the trustees and staff at Baltimore Clayworks is administering the Baltimore Clayworks Scholarship fund. The staff and trustees assure applicants and their families that the financial information supplied here will be held in the strictest confidence. Financial need is a primary factor in the decision making process; however the committee is not bound by any established formula in making the awards. The committee seeks, in so far as possible, to balance responsibility for the stewardship of donated funds with applicants needs, commitment to ceramics, and concern for privacy.

Scholarship funds may cover full or partial class enrollment for one class, including 25lbs. of clay. Scholarship recipient remains responsible for any additional material costs and glaze firing fees where applicable.

If you have any questions regarding the application or our programs please contact Matthew Hyleck @ (410)-578-1919 or via e-mail matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org Thank you.

Hands in Clay Scholarship

Baltimore Clayworks' goal in providing the Hands in Clay scholarship is to improve the diversity of our adult student body and remove economic barriers to class enrollment. An applicant will be selected by lottery each session and awarded a choice of one 8-12 week class at our Mt. Washington campus to attend free of charge.

Eligible applicants self-identify as either a person of color or a person with a disability, and require financial assistance for tuition.

After the scholarship is awarded, we’ll schedule a 1:1 conversation with the recipient to discuss specific access and transportation needs so we are best prepared to promote safe and effective participation.
