ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

Tabitha Babbitt, a Shaker woman, was credited with inventing the first circular saw in the late 1800s.  She also invented false teeth!   This Scholarship honors her achievements and is designed to promote the involvement and engagement of women and those who identify as female,  in the turning, carving, and furniture field through a tuition and travel scholarship to any week-long class at the Florida School of Woodwork.

If you are applying for the scholarship, your application must include the following:

• The name and date of the class you would like to attend with two other alternates if your first choice is not available
• A brief description (100-150 words) of why you like to attend

The Application period is  Dec 1st, 2020 to January 30th, and will be awarded between Dec 31st and Feb 28th, 2021.  Recipients will be notified by email. All grant funds must be used and accounted for by December 2021

Applicants may not have received a grant or scholarship from the Florida School of Woodwork in the previous year.
