Pocosin’s scholarship program receives support from a variety of sources. It helps make our carefully selected programs available to as many as possible. We strive to keep our prices affordable and offer scholarships to assist.
We set aside several need-based scholarships for each workshop on our schedule. The application process is straight forward, and you may apply for a partial or complete waiver of tuition and housing. Applications must be received not less than 45 days before the start of the workshop. However, we review applications on an ongoing basis, and it is best to apply well in advance to ensure the best possible chance for selection. The workshop attendee pays workshop materials and the $35 registration fee. Applicants will be notified of our decision approximately one week after the application is submitted.
