Workshop Scholarships

Pocosin’s scholarship program is intended to make our workshops more accessible to students otherwise be unable to participate. Apply today!

Full & Partial Scholarships

Full and partial scholarships are available for every summer 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.



Scholarship applications for the 2023 Summer Workshop season are closed.

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. 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.

Scholarship applications for the 2023 Summer Workshop season are closed.

Fellows also participate in the ten-day Summer Residency program. In exchange, Pocosin Fellows assist with tasks around campus for approximately 20 hours per week.

Applicants must be on campus during weekdays for the entire program duration and must have a valid driver’s license and a vehicle.
