Awards will not be made on the basis of financial need. The applicant will describe her/his fiber interests and her/his reasons for wanting to attend CNCH 2012 Conference. Selection will be based on both the applicant’s personal goals and upon how they plan to share their experience to their guild.

The scholarship committee consists of at least three members from the CNCH Advisory Board. The committee does not have access to applicant’s names.

Applicants should register for the conference using Regonline or by mail paying the registration fees.  Awardees will be sent a check from CNCH, INC to reimburse for those fees once registration and guild membership is confirmed.

If the scholarship recipient is unable to attend CNCH 2012 Conference for any reason, the recipient needs to notify the CNCH committee as early as possible to be able to award the scholarship to another individual, if time allows.
