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.

Summer Fellow­ship

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

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.
