The James C. Whitney Memorial Scholarship

Jim Whitney was a strong supporter of the American Glass Guild during its inception, and approached his life, art, and craft with great passion and a high level of integrity. We hope his zest for life and pursuit of excellence will inspire recipients of this memorial scholarship in their stained glass careers. Since 2007 the Whitney Memorial Scholarship has handed out over 100 scholarships.

Recipients receive full or partial scholarships for various educational opportunities, such as conferences and workshops, or ongoing educational efforts.
