Independent Study Program
The Guild’s Board of Trustees created the Independent Study Program solely for Fellow members. The intent is to enable interested Fellow Members to pursue research projects consistent with the theme of “miniatures as an art form” by providing them with financial support in the form of a grant. The purpose of the award is to enable the recipient(s) to do research connected with a specific object, technique, material, or historical setting, or to expand the Fellow Member’s skills.
The Guild expects to receive some benefit as a result of the study grant. This could be in the form of teaching a class at the annual Guild Show, a Guild Study Program or the Guild School, a detailed article in The CUBE, a lecture at the annual Guild Show or the Guild School, a presentation (PowerPoint or video) for Guild use, or a donation of a piece to a Guild auction.
The grant for the 2013-2014 fiscal year will be a maximum of $2000.
