NESM Metalsmithing Scholarship Program
The New England School of Metalwork, Metalsmithing Program; awards three scholarships annually, which are available through competitive application to those who are 16 years of age or older. One is awarded in Bladesmithing and two in Blacksmithing. Applicants may only apply for one scholarship annually. Applicants are encouraged to be selective in their choice of workshop, indicating first and second choices. The scholarships are for one complete (4 to 5 day) course and the associated cost such as registration and material fees. A dorm or travel allowance of 25% of course tuition is a part of each scholarship. Please keep in mind that answers to the questions on the application form are an important part of the review process. Focused application responses and thoughtful discussion of ones plans and focus of the scholarship tend to be more favorably received.
Thanks to generous donations from individuals we are offering three opportunities:
1. Al Pratt Memorial Scholarship for Blacksmithing (open to all)

Due to the Covid-19 virus canceling so many courses that Scholarship winners selected in 2020, the NESM BOD has decided to honor all 2020 awards into 2021 and 2022.
Therefore, we will not be offering a 2022 Scholarship so that the 2020 winners have a chance to use their awarded scholarship.
