Full and partial scholarships are available for every on-campus workshop. On-campus workshop scholarships include full or partial waivers of tuition and housing. Full scholarships include a work-study requirement but will not miss Instructor demonstrations.
The Summer Fellowship offers a full scholarship for tuition and housing for all summer sessions, the Summer Residency, and a $1625 stipend. The program runs from May 18 — August 5, 2024. In exchange, Pocosin Fellows work approximately 20 hours per week. Work hours and class time may have some overlap but Fellows will not miss demonstrations. Fellows will gain insight into the workings of a non-profit arts organization, be immersed in a creative community, and have the opportunity to meet and learn from world-class artists.
Studio assistants are responsible for helping instructors as directed, recording student material purchases, upholding Pocosin policies, and maintaining a clean and safe working environment. They should have enough experience in their studio area to be capable of helping other students as needed.
Studio assistants receive housing, tuition, and meals. They are responsible for their own travel, material costs, and studio and material fees for the workshop. Selection is based on knowledge of a working studio, relevant experience, and merit. Studio Assistant Scholarships may not be available for every workshop.
