Larson-Juhl Scholarship Deadline Extended

Post by fine-art-trade-guild » Fri 14 May, 2021 10:45 am

The final entry date for the first round of the 2021 Larson-Juhl scholarship has been extended to the 15th June . 🎓

Larson-Juhl and the Fine Art Trade Guild offer four scholarships (available in the UK only) annually. These scholarships give UK candidates the opportunity to take their Guild Certified Framer exam and achieve their initial Continuing Professional Development points.

Now open for applications.
Closes on the 15 June 2021 (17:00 hrs)

Larson-Juhl Scholars 🎓 benefit from a generous package which includes:
✔️GCF Study Guide
✔️GCF exam fee, for one attempt at a recognised GCF Test Centre
✔️One place at selected Guild workshops and Seminars for one year earning up to 10 CPD points
✔️One place at Guild Study Days, gaining 5 CPD points per class

The Guild Certified Framer GCF(APF) accreditation offers Guild member framers an internationally recognised certification for framing professionals. A rigorous examination with an approved examiner, backed up by an accessible Continuing Professional Development programme provides framers with the confidence that they are up to date with industry best practice.

Who can apply?
The scholarship 🎓 is designed to help framers at the start of their careers, and those that have no formal training. It is recommended that all GCF candidates have at least 12 months' framing experience to build up the necessary knowledge and skills.

Applicants must be, or are aspiring to be, professional picture framers and can either run their own business or be in employment as a framer.

We are really pleased to have extended the deadline for applications in light of just how busy so many of us in the industry are at the moment, so soon after reopening post-lockdown.

For anyone interested, it is well worth having a chat with Justin about his experiences of applying for and taking the scholarship.

Best of luck to all applicants in this round.

Besides this scholarship, Lars Juhl have a lot of reasorces on their website and packages of information to help new picture framers to put together their business plans and stuff like that. They also have some interesting webinars on their website as well. A lot of potentionally helpful information that should prove interesting to those starting their own framing businesses.
