Scholarship and volunteer opportunities are integral to Metalwerx's programming. Metalwerx was founded in 1998 and became a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2005. Over the past decade, we have been raising money for our scholarship fund through community member donations and fundraisers.

Our scholarships provide financial assistance for recipients to enhance their skills, study with a visiting artist, find new inspiration and expand their metalworking repertoire. Scholarships are offered throughout the year.  Current opportunities (and availability dates) are listed below.

Received a Scholarship? We want to hear from you!

The purpose of collecting feedback from scholarship recipients is to assist Metalwerx in measuring the success of our program, as well as to provide contributors to our scholarship program with accounts of the benefits of their support. Many of the foundations who support us and the individual donors who contribute to this program continue to give, because they know their gifts are providing enriching opportunities for students to learn and grow as artists.
