Studio assistants are students who assist instructors and are responsible for maintaining the school’s standards for studio operation. They receive housing and meals and pay only the $50 nonrefundable processing fee. They are selected based on their knowledge of a working studio. In addition to 25–40 hours of work each week, studio assistants are required to work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the day before and 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM the day after their session; they must make travel arrangements which will allow them to meet this requirement. If you cannot meet this requirement, please do not apply.
Many instructors select their own assistants; available positions will be listed on this page and on Slideroom. Applicants must submit images of their work and at least two references.
International students note: Because the U.S. government considers our work-study scholarship and studio assistantship programs to be work for hire, students who are not U.S. citizens may not receive work-study scholarships or studio assistantships unless they have a work permit.
