Workshop Scholarship

workshop scholarships

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.

Pocosin Arts will provide one need-based scholarship for each workshop on our schedule. These are full-tuition scholarships. Please prioritize your selections numerically 1, 2, and 3. Application submissions will be accepted up to 30 days prior to the desired workshop/s. 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 for any workshop materials or class kits provided by the instructor. Applicants will be notified of our decision approximately two weeks after the application is submitted. Should a workshop be canceled for any reason, scholarship recipients will be allowed to select an alternate workshop. There is a $10 scholarship application fee.

Submission Deadlines
