Deadline for Scholarship applications has been extended to March 27 for Adult Level Workshops. Teen Week Application deadline has been extended to May 1.

Touchstone scholarships provide opportunities for many deserving individuals of all skill levels, ages, and backgrounds to attend workshops each year. While financial need is often a factor in allocating these funds, Touchstone is also dedicated to ensuring that artistic merit and intensity of interest are seriously considered.

Incomplete application packages will NOT be reviewed. Scholarship applicants will be notified via email of their award or denial. If applicable, you may apply for multiple scholarships with one complete application. Scholarships are only valid for the year in which they are awarded; individuals who are unable to attend their awarded workshop will forfeit their scholarship.

Touchstone also offers teen week scholarships for ages 14-17. Eligible teens will receive 100% tuition, room and board and teens can apply directly through Touchstone by filling out the application.
