The Toronto Guild offers a bursary each year to a member of the Guild who is undertaking a specific study or research project. All active members in good standing can apply. The bursary money can be put toward the costs of a specific project or course of study designed to improve the skills and artistry of those practicing our crafts. Recipients are invited to present the results of their learning to the Guild at one of our members’ meetings. 

If you are planning to develop specific skills, participate in an educational program, or undertake your own study, and if $300 would help you towards this end, please consider applying.  You can download the application here.  

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 15, 2024.  The successful applicant will report on their project about one year later.The Bursary will be awarded at the May meeting, when 2023 Bursary recipient Micah Herron will present the results of his project.

When selecting the recipient, the Guild will use the following considerations:

  • Personal growth – How will this endeavour expand the individual applicant’s skills and knowledge?
  • Well-defined plan – How will the applicant take the learning and apply it to  a finished work? Is the project attainable over 12 months?
  • Inspiration – How does this endeavour appeal to the applicant’s individual interests, creativity, and passion?

Please feel free to provide any photos, diagrams, or any other supporting documents to further illustrate your vision.
