PCA Grants Program

The PCA has a vision and a mission to educate members and the public about glass paperweights. One mechanism for doing this is to sponsor grants in various areas such as scholarship grants to Registered PCA Artists so they can advance their skills and experiment with new techniques. Another is to encourage museums and other groups and individuals to take on projects that create new research and information, create exhibits, and digitize previous and new information to make it more widely available across the world.

The PCA has long been known for its excellent production of the Annual Bulletin of the Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc. as well as informative conferences held every other year. If you have an idea for a Grant project please fill out the application below. Please consider donating to the Grants Program Fund here.


 Application Process

Grants are open for application year-round. Most are in the range of $2000 and have eligibility requirements and terms and conditions that must be met. The PCA Grants Committee reviews and makes decisions about grants year-round.
