In 2004, the Enamelist Society established a program for awarding of grants to projects that contribute directly to the advancement of enameling. The Society is interested in, but not limited to, educational projects and those that promote enameling. A total of $38,333 has been awarded for the years 2004 through 2010.
Funds may not be awarded directly to individuals but rather to groups, such as Guilds, Schools, Art Centers and other organizations that are not commercial in nature. In addition, an Enamelist Society member must be connected to the organization receiving the grant and must be the contact person for the duration of the project, including making an evaluation of it.
Funds for these projects are raised by the Raffle and Auction at each biennial Conference. Please remember when you bid at the Auction or are asked to buy a Raffle ticket your money is going directly to support projects that will enable enameling to continue.
Deadline: January 18, 2013
