Scholarships

At GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their creative interests, whatever their financial means. Our scholarship program provides a gateway to high-quality learning experiences for those 7 and up looking to explore processes of making and hone their artistic skills within a professional studio environment.

General Guidelines

  • Applications are valid only for the term/courses indicated. Students must complete a new application to be considered for scholarship awards in subsequent terms.
  • Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and depend on the enrollment.
  • Award recipients will be notified, by email or phone, one week prior to the class or workshop start date.
  • Award recipients are still responsible for any applicable material/supply fees associated with the class or workshop of their choice.
  • Incomplete applications will not be eligible for consideration.
  • Applicants not awarded a scholarship may still enroll in a class, based on space availability, by submitting tuition payment on or before the class or workshop start date.

Financial Need-Based Scholarships / 100% off tuition

GoggleWorks’ need-based scholarships remove financial obstacles for students by waiving 100% tuition for the class/workshop of their choice. Scholarship awards are offered on a rolling basis and may be used towards any class or workshop offered during our fall, winter, spring, and summer terms (excluding Maker Dates). Awards are based on demonstrated financial hardship and enrollment availability of the class or workshop of the recipients’ choice. Each scholarship applicant is evaluated based on a combination of available course enrollment, the applicant’s financial need, and/or the applicants’ personal interest in furthering their relationship with the arts.
