UrbanGlass offers four deadlines a year for general scholarship applications. These four deadlines are at the start of each semester, when there is most funding available for financial aid and students have the best chance of admission into their preferred workshop. To apply for a scholarship, please fill out the Scholarship Application Form below.
Please be aware of the following deadlines for General Scholarships:
December 3, 2018: Deadline for applications for Winter scholarships
March 1, 2019: Deadline for applications for Spring scholarships
May 2019: Deadline for applications for Summer scholarships
August 2019: Deadline for applications for Fall scholarships
UrbanGlass offers a rolling scholarship application accessible throughout the year, but the extent of assistance with tuition is dependent on available funding and will vary. It is highly recommended to apply at these deadlines.
UrbanGlass partners with over 160 universities and arts organizations around the world to offer free and low cost learning opportunities for students, staff, faculty and recent alumni. Please inquire with your university or home studio to see if they have a partnership set up. To set up a partnership for your school or studio please email email@example.com.
Bead Project Alumnae Scholarships

The Fund will provide ten, full scholarships each year, through 2028.*
• Partial scholarships through our general scholarship fund are also available for Bead Project alumnae.*

Alumnae may only receive a scholarship from the Chelicca Fund once per calendar year. Additional scholarships may be possible through the general scholarship fund within the same calendar year.

Youth Partnership Scholarships
Modeled on our extremely successful University partnership scholarship program, UrbanGlass is reaching out to local schools and youth arts organizations to set up collaborative scholarships for our summer camps and other youth programs. The details of these scholarships vary from school to school but all recipients are chosen by our partner organizations so please inquire with your school or arts organization if they have a partnership with UrbanGlass. Any parent group, school official or teacher interested in setting up such a relationship for your school, please contact Ben Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
