I already mentioned recently that it’s time again for the annual Beans for Brains scholarship applications but I just received a press release about it from Jimmy Beans Wool so I thought I’d share it again. After all, it’s a college scholarship for knitters, crocheters and people who sew so it’s a super cool thing that is worth spreading the word about!

Beans for Brains is Back

From the press release:

“The Beans for Brains Scholarship Program is back for the fourth year! This year five students will receive a merit-based scholarship of $3,200 each to help finance their higher education. This is one fun way the hand-knitting, crochet and sewing industries are rewarding brainy crafters!”

Some Requirements

  • Applicants for this craft scholarship must be planning to be enrolled in an accredited, approved institution of higher education in the US during the 2013-14 academic year.
  • Applications are due between March 1st and March 31st. That means there are only about two weeks left to submit an application.
  • Applications they must include a knitting, crochet or sewing project submission. I’d love to see some great crochet submission among this year’s winners – wouldn’t you?!
  • The full application and all details can be found here.

About Beans for Brains

From the press release:

“Wonder where the Beans for Brains Scholarship Program comes from? Started in 2010 by Jimmy Beans Wool, a Reno-based retailer of yarn and fabric who saw a need to give back and invest in the future of the fiber industry, the program has grown to be supported by many other generous companies from throughout the fiber world! Including us! We are delighted to be part of Beans for Brains. You can also find a full list of donors here.”

Make sure to tell all of the crafty college students you know about this one!
