Legacy Program

A scholarship program was established and maintained to provide educational opportunities to expand and enrich the entire woodworking community, and to provide ways that these skills may be shared with Guild members and members of the general public.

This program served both individuals (generally scholarships) and organizations (generally grants)  such as schools.

The Grant Program replaced the Scholarship Program in late 2015.
