Enriching lives through art and craft

Arrowmont offers financial aid opportunities to make workshop experiences and professional development available to the broadest population of students. We believe that Arrowmont is for everyone. Our community is far richer and more meaningful when a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and voices come together. We encourage and welcome students of all backgrounds to experience Arrowmont and have many educational assistance opportunities available in case of need.

Arrowmont is committed to the ongoing journey towards creating an inclusive, anti-racist, diverse arts and crafts community that welcomes and supports everyone. We strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+ individuals, individuals with disabilities, and non-artists to apply.

The Internship Program is designed for individuals interested in working with staff over a two-three month period to learn about nonprofit administration. Interns are housed in an on-campus apartment with private bath and kitchenette and receive a modest weekly stipend in exchange for working 40 hours per week, some weekends required.


Arrowmont offers many scholarship opportunities to enable students to attend workshops at reduced cost. Scholarships provide partial or full coverage for tuition, housing and meals and are awarded based on financial need and/or specific criteria depending on the sources of the funds.       

The Arrowmont Work-Study Program has been discontinued. As a result, Arrowmont is no longer accepting applications. If you were considering work-study, we encourage you to apply for an internship or scholarship.
