Student Scholarships

Funding to attend the Conference

Each year, the Glass Art Society recognizes the achievements and potential of those members currently enrolled as full-time students in undergraduate and graduate programs. Applications are evaluated by a professional jury, and selected students are awarded scholarships so that they may attend the annual GAS conference in order to learn, connect, and grow as artists.
