How will the review committee be chosen? - The Guild President will choose 5 non-board members anonymously. Their terms will be run for 2 years. Three members will be chosen from the group each time applications are reviewed. The workshop chair will be a liason between the board and the review committee.
What is the process for applying? - There will be a two-page form. Page one will consist of name, address, phone number and e-mail.

The workshop chair will give each application a number and mark both pages with the same number. The chair will retain the cover page and forward the proposal page to the review committee. After a decision is reached the committee will notify the workshop chair and the chair will notify both the WWG board and the recipient.
How will the scholarships be funded? - The guild will use basket drawings, donations, the stash sale and other funding methods to be determined.
