Annual Passion for Making Scholarship


The Passion for Making scholarship is an annual $500 scholarship designed to promote craftsmanship. We’re looking for those who make things either professionally or leisurely to share their passion for creation with us. Students can detail what they create and why they enjoy it, or they can submit photos of a creation to us. Submissions can be in the form of:

  • An essay

  • A photo

  • A video

  • An animation

  • A graphic

  • A poem

Students aren’t limited to the aforementioned media forms. Submissions will be accepted in other multimedia formats as well. Do you carve wooden sculptures? Have you built your own tiny home? Do you build model planes? Do you create your own clothing items? We’d love to see or hear about what it is that you’re passionate about making.


The Passion for Making scholarship is open to all US citizens entering or attending a university, college, or trade school in the United States as a full-time student. Applicants must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above. In addition to submitting a piece on creative passions, students must also submit a completed scholarship application form. The following materials need to be submitted to by August 15th:

  • A completed scholarship application form

  • A media piece (essay, poem, photo, video animation, etc.) demonstrating or explaining your passion for making

  • A certified copy of the student’s transcripts
