The FUSION Scholarship Fund provides funding for clay or glass artists wishing to further their education. Workshops, summer courses, formal education programs through universities and colleges, travel assistance and research projects are all formats that may be included for consideration. 

FUSION is interested in supporting innovative artists who excel in their chosen medium – clay or glass. The jury is asked to evaluate (1) design excellence, (2) quality and workmanship, and (3) originality in the work submitted. The applicant should also be able to articulate how the educational program will advance their long-term artistic practice, the dissemination of their work, or their career development.

FUSION Scholarship Program Recipient Amber Zuber.docx

This ceramic residency was an awesome opportunity for me to gain a greater understanding and a new perspective on not just ceramics, but various materials involved in craft. It was through numerous lectures and the final exhibition in particular where I presented my work and research done during the residency, as I got to meet and interact with an international audience with diverse viewpoints. Being introduced through a local newspaper, and appearing on a radio show was a unique experience, and I got to exchange thoughts and ideas on variety of different subjects, going beyond our different languages. I want to express my sincere gratitude to Fusion, who has awarded me with this fantastic opportunity.
