The F. Marvin Bahr Bookbinding Scholarship

The annual F. Marvin Bahr award is a need-based scholarship entitling the recipient to the tuition for a one- or two-day class. The scholarship is awarded every April and is to be used within that calendar year. The purpose of the scholarship is to honor and perpetuate the memory of our good friend and longtime student Marvin Bahr in a manner of which he would heartily approve.

Applicants are to apply via email (workshops@cattailrun.com) addressed to the Selection Committee, and in several paragraphs describe their interest in book craft and reason for seeking studies in bookbinding as well as indicate the course for which they would like to use the scholarship. The application deadline is March 15, and receipt of the application will be acknowledged.

While no financial documentation is required, applicants are on their honor when applying for this scholarship to be of means whereby class tuition creates for them an undue budgetary burden that interferes with their ability to enroll in a class. At this time, housing allowance, travel expenses, or course materials fees are not part of the award. Preference will be given to those who have not already been a recipient of the award, although past recipients are not discouraged from re-applying for the award. The award is non-transferrable and has no cash value. Enrollment in a particular course is subject to availability and satisfaction of any course pre-requisites.
