Mima Weissmann Memorial Fund for the Study of Ceramic Art

2014 Application Deadline: July 15
Applicants will be notified by: July 30

The Mima Weissmann Memorial Fund for the Study of Ceramics Arts will award tuition to one individual for a year of study at the Ceramics Program of the Office for the Arts at Harvard.
The annual cycle runs from the Fall term through the following Spring
and/or Summer terms. Ideally, an applicant would be able to use the
studio all 3 terms, but individuals may apply for fewer terms of
tuition. In loving memory of Mima Weissmann, friends and family have
contributed to a scholarship fund that has been established by her
husband, Dewey Fraser, for the Ceramics Program of the Office for the
Arts at Harvard. The generous donations will enable recipients to study
in the educational environment and community that Mima helped to shape
during her many years as a valued staff member, teacher, and
artist-in-residence.

Applicants must have been working in ceramics for at least one year.
