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


Jim, a strong supporter of the American Glass Guild during its inception, 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 68 scholarships.
