The Center awards graduating seniors each with $15,000 in the form of a Windgate Fellowship.
The Center partners with museums to offer four Windgate Museum Internships for either graduate or undergraduate students who are aspiring craft curators. Interns work closely with museum staff on a craft collection, exhibition, or research project designed specifically for the internship. Since 2006, the Center has awarded internships to 21 graduate and undergraduate students from 10 museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
Motivated by the writings of longtime Craft Horizons Magazine editor Rose Slivka and artist/poet M.C. Richards, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) presents a challenge for makers and writers: to create a new collaborative work inspired by The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons Magazine, 1941-1979 in just 11 days.
