50th Anniversary Scholarship

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ottawa Guild of Potters in 2023 we are pleased to announce a series of ten, $500 scholarships to provide funding for anyone wishing to further their education in clay.  The scholarship must be for clay and not the general arts. Workshops, summer courses, formal education programs through universities and colleges, travel assistance, the purchase of materials/tools etc. for applicant's studio, and research projects are all formats that may be included for consideration.

  • This Scholarship is open to people of all ages living in Ottawa during the OGP's 50th anniversary year in 2023, or who are members in good standing of The Ottawa Guild of Potters at the time of application.
  • Ten scholarships of $500 each will be awarded on February 14, 2023.
  • Applications will be accepted between January 1 - 31, 2023 via this page:  APPLICATIONS
  • Applicants will be required to use their award within the calendar year of 2023.
  • Successful applicants will be required to present the OGP with a short presentation (given in person, virtually, by recording, or by written text) that describes their use of the 50th Anniversary Scholarship.
  • The jury for the 50th Anniversary Scholarship will consider a broad range of clay enthusiasts covering young makers, through to adults and seniors across our community.

In our 50th year, the Ottawa Guild of Potters will highlight our many years of community outreach projects and hope that this unique scholarship opportunity will spread our love of clay to others for years to come. Good luck to all applicants!
