Bedayn-Thomson Grant Fund

A General Grant is typically a grant for merit. It has more rigid eligibility requirements than the Scholarship Grant, a higher funding cap (up to $2,000 per grant) and is for purposes that benefit CBA and the craft of Blacksmithing.

General Grant applications can be sent to Carol De Maintenon.

Scholarship Grant

A Scholarship Grant is typically a grant for for need. It is limited to the purpose of improving a member’s blacksmithing skills by attending a course at an approved school or workshop. Eligibility for this type of grant is more relaxed, and the maximum amount awarded is $800 towards the cost of the course. Travel costs are not included in a Scholarship. CBA Conferences do not fit the purposes of a Scholarship.

Scholarship Grant applications can be sent to Carol De Maintenon.
