for Workshops and Classes

Colorado Quilting Council invites members to apply for scholarships to take classes and workshops offered through the council or other quilting entities. The scholarships can be used for online workshops the same as in-person workshops. 

Applicants must be CQC members in good standing for at least one year before applying. Scholarships are paid directly to the entity offering the class, not the recipients. Applications must be received by the end of each month and at least 30 days before the workshop/class date.

Scholarships pay tuition only, not registrant, entrance fees or kit fees. They are limited to $75 per person. A maximum of six scholarships totaling up to $500 will be awarded in a calendar year. If more than six applicants meet the requirements, recipients will be determined through a lottery. The workshop/class must be quilt-related. Applications must include a description of the workshop/class and the applicant's purpose in taking it. 

Shirley Sanden was a founder of Colorado Quilting Council. The scholarships are given in her memory. CQC members support the scholarship fund through buying chances to win quilts and quilt-related items at in-person meetings of CQC. Donations to the fund can be made at any time.
