Educational Assistance: Work Study and Scholarship Opportunities

The Work-Study Program

The Work-study Program is an integral part of Arrowmont’s operations, and provides an opportunity for people with limited financial resources to participate in classes. Educational assistance is provided to the student as a part of the Program. Students receive class tuition, housing and meals during their work-study commitment.

Travel, materials fees and other art supplies are the responsibility of the student and are to be paid weekly. Classes are awarded based on availability.

Short-term work-study positions are available in Kitchen, Registration, Supply Store, Housekeeping and Studio Assistant.

Work-studies receive one week of class for each 45-50 hour weeks of work assisting the full-time staff. These student-employees are expected to work up to 22 hours during class weeks.

The Studio Assistant position requires an art background and image submission. Art experience is not required for the other work-study positions.

Seasonal Assistantships: Supply Store and Gallery Assistant: related experience in art, retail sales and gallery necessary. Development Assistant: experience in arts administration or development preferred. Seasonal Assistants will have 40-hour work weeks and will work 10-15 hours during class weeks.
