2021 Guild Scholarship Recipients

Article - September 17, 2021

We are extremely grateful to everyone that applied. There were so many worthy applicants (we had over 100 to review), that it really was a difficult process to narrow it down to just 12 woodworkers. Thankfully we have a very generous group of Guild members and they were able to donate enough for 22 more scholarships! If you didn’t receive a scholarship this time, please do not get discouraged. We will be opening the Scholarships back up in June/July of 2022 and would love to see you apply again. If you feel you need guidance on the application next time, please read some of the tips on the Scholarship page before submitting your next application.

So without further ado here are the 34 recipients of The Wood Whisperer Guild. Congratulations to all of them!

Marc and I wish you continued success in your woodworking journey! Best, Nicole
