Scholarship Gifts


Our scholarship program helps those who would otherwise be unable to attend have joyous and enlivening learning experiences. Examples of recipients might be young people without deeper financial resources, people burdened by the weight of medical debt, or those challenged by a significant life event who need respite. Imagine helping a passionate, burgeoning artist who's poised to become a professional artist.

The Folk School's scholarship awards committee solicits and considers applications and awards scholarships based on specific scholarship agreements with each donor.

The Folk School offers two types of scholarship vehicles:

Endowed Scholarships
Those seeking to ensure long-term access to learning opportunities for others may endow a scholarship with a minimum initial gift of $25,000. You may name the scholarship after yourself or choose an honorific or memorial name. Scholarships may be designated to benefit students in a certain program area, e.g., basketry or jewelry, or they may be unrestricted.

The principal balance is invested to generate earnings, and scholarships for tuition, housing and meals are awarded as earnings allow, typically annually. Those earnings benefit the purpose of the fund while the principal remains invested to generate future earnings. Typically, the greater a fund's principal, the greater its annual dividend.

To establish an endowed scholarship, call or email Kathi Osborne, Development Director, at 800-365-5724 or kathi@folkschool.org.

Individually Funded Scholarships
You can provide a single scholarship for tuition, housing and meals with a gift of $1,350. The donation is not invested but, rather, is used as soon as a qualifying recipient is identified. You may name the scholarship after yourself or choose an honorific or memorial name. Scholarships may be designated to benefit students in a certain program area, e.g., woodturning or painting, or they may be unrestricted.

To provide an individually funded scholarship, mail your check to Kathi Osborne, Development Director, John C. Campbell Folk School, 1 Folk School Rd., Brasstown, NC 28902 or call 800-365-5724 to donate by credit card. Individual scholarships for specific program areas can also be made by credit card at fundaneed.folkschool.org. Click on the program area you're interested in, then add Scholarship to your cart.
