CONTINUING EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Dewey Lee Curtis Symposium Scholarships
Curtis scholarships enable graduate students and young professionals in a field related to the decorative arts to attend the Decorative Arts Trust’s biannual symposia. The Trust supports at least two scholarships for each symposium. Named in memory of the late Dewey Lee Curtis, a decorative arts historian and founding father of the Trust, scholarships cover the full cost of symposium registration, lodging, and a modest travel stipend.
The deadline for applications is five weeks prior to the beginning of the symposium. See our calendar of events for upcoming programs.
