Scholarships

Dr. Madhusudan SN was the Director and Head of World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for Research, a distinguished Researcher, Professor and Head of Department of Neuro-Virology at NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences) in Bangalore, India. He was awarded the title of “Bharat Vidya Shiromani”, the highest award for outstanding contribution to Education from the Government of India. He was instrumental in furthering the understanding of Neuro-Virology/Rabies which has saved, and continues to save, the lives of countless people.

Dr. Madhusudan’s love of art was profound, and he had a special connection with Seattle and Pottery Northwest through his family. He loved students and believed that revolution is only possible when students are convinced about their ideas, with a mindset for a better cause or to solve an existing problem. He was considering moving and settling in Seattle and becoming involved at the Pottery, but left this world to start a different journey. This scholarship is in remembrance of his love for students and art.

Are you passionate about art and ceramics but cannot meet the price of a class? If so, then we have you covered. We are providing a limited number of income-based scholarships for individuals who cannot afford to pay full price for a class.

We have a limited number of scholarships available, so we ask that if you receive a scholarship you do your best to be a model student by following the guidelines in the student handbook!

Any payment for a class that is subsidized by a scholarship is non-refundable. To apply please fill out the Scholarship Application and email it to info@potterynorthwest.org or bring it to the office within 1 week after class registration opens. After initial review we may schedule a call to discuss class options with you.

Pottery Northwest values diversity among our student body. We recognize that through inclusive programming we create a more vibrant environment for fostering creativity and promoting excellence in the ceramic arts. The Inclusivity Scholarship was created to set aside funding specifically to provide an opportunity for individuals from racially and culturally diverse communities access to our classes. People of color or from underrepresented communities living at 200% the poverty line are encouraged to apply for the Pottery Northwest Inclusivity Scholarship. Applicants applying to this scholarship will also be considered for the need based student scholarship as well – a separate application is not needed.
