Full & Partial Scholarships

Pocosin’s scholarship program is intended to make our workshops more accessible to students who would otherwise be unable to participate.

Full and partial scholarships are available for every on-campus workshop, and include full or partial waivers of tuition and housing. Full scholarships have a work-study requirement.

Scholarships for online workshops will be offered again soon.

Funding is generously provided by The John & Robyn Horn Foundation, the Bruce Barnett Scholarship, the James C. Hook Scholarship, and individual donors

Studio Assistant Scholarship

Studio assistants are responsible for helping instructors as directed, recording student material purchases, upholding Pocosin policies, and maintaining a clean and safe working environment. Though they are also considered students in their workshop, because of their role as assistants they should have enough experience in their studio area to be capable of helping other students as needed. Studio assistants receive housing, tuition, and a meal stipend. They are responsible for their own travel, material costs, and studio fee 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.

 Pocosin Fellowship

This program offers a full scholarship for tuition and housing for all summer sessions and the Summer Residency, and a $1625 stipend. 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.

Applicants must be on campus for the entire program and have a valid driver’s license and a vehicle. The applicant will be required to provide documentation of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination before arrival on campus, including at least one booster shot if eligible.

The program runs from May 18 – August 7, 2023

Application opens in January 2023
