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.

Work-study positions are available in Kitchen, Housekeeping, Registration, Gallery, Development, Supply Store, Maintenance, 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 as well.

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

Contact Rebecca Buglio, program and studio manager, by email at rbuglio@arrowmont.org or call 865-436-5860 ex 38 for more information.
