• Scholarship Program

    We believe that everyone can benefit from taking craft classes.

    If you’d like to take a class and you don’t think you or your family can afford the tuition, you may apply for a scholarship to assist you. Most of our scholarships are based on financial need, as well as on the potential for the student to benefit from instruction.

    Adult scholarships are available for the Center’s 6-week or 12-week classes and cover tuition only; any materials or studio fees must be paid for by the student. Youth Scholarships are for our 6-week classes and include all materials. Adult scholarships often require an interview on the phone or in person.

    An email or phone call will inform you whether you qualify for a scholarship. Decisions on placement usually occur less than a week before classes begin as we wait to see if there is the enrollment for the class to run.

    Please use the official applications below and read all instructions carefully before applying:

    We Need Your Voice

    The Worcester Center for Crafts is committed to providing the best possible experience to our visitors and students. Sometimes we’re great; sometimes we need to be reminded that we serve the public and we should be better. Good or bad, we need to know.

    After each session of classes, we hope that you’ll take a moment to give us your feedback. Input from you is critical to our being the best Crafts Center possible.

    Please take a moment to give us your feedback on your class using the following survey.
