CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Haystack Mountain School of Crafts

Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is an international craft school located on the Atlantic Ocean in Deer Isle, Maine. The school offers intensive studio-based workshops in a variety of craft media including clay, glass, metals, paper, blacksmithing, weaving, woodworking and more. Programs range from short workshops to two-week sessions and anyone may participate, from beginners to advanced professionals.

Haystack’s scholarship program awards up to 100 scholarships annually, which are available through competitive application to those who are 18 years of age or older. Applicants may seek scholarship support in more than one category. Because competition for Haystack scholarships is intense, applicants are encouraged to be selective in their choice of workshops, indicating only first and second choices. Please keep in mind that answers to the questions on the application form are an important part of the review process. Focused applications tend to be more favorably received.


Enrollment in each studio is limited. Applications are reviewed competitively.

Begin Application Process:

Scholarship applicants (including Technical Assistants, Work Study and Minority Work Study) submit applications online through SlideRoom at Technical Assistant, Work Study, and Minority Work Study applicants are not required to mail in hard copies of the application forms. Applicants who do not receive scholarships and wish to be considered for regular enrollment can indicate this on the application.
