Apply Now for Ann Ashworth Scholarship
Applications are now being accepted for the Ann Ashworth Scholarship.
The Ann Ashworth Scholarship was initially funded by a close group of Anne’s friends in the Richmond, Vermont rug hooking group, to honor her devotion to hooking and its growth as an art form. She also taught in the Richmond group for many years.
Anne was a co-founder in 1981 of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild and founder of the Green Mountain Rug School, now run by her daughter Stephanie Allen-Krauss. Anne started a hooked rug pattern business, was a nationally acclaimed rug hooker, and worked as a freelance custom dyer.
Guild members may apply for a scholarship now. It may be used for any rug hooking class in or outside of the United States. The amount of each scholarship is $150.00 and one will be awarded each year between June 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014. The scholarship must be used during that year.
The Ashworth Scholarship is not based on financial need or the quality of your writing or your hooking. You must be an active member in The Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild.
