Scholarship and Residency Opportunities

Deadline: April 1, 2007

Summer Assistantship Residencies: Available in Blacksmithing, Ceramics, Fine Metals, Fibers: Surface, Fibers: Structure, Wood, Photography and Special Topics.

Matriculated College Student Scholarships: Half-tuition scholarships for matriculated college students to come to a summer workshop and learn new skills or further their knowledge of craft. These scholarships require a nominal ten hours of service to the Valley in housekeeping, the kitchen or grounds. The cost of lab fees and room and board are the responsibility of the student.

High School Student Scholarships: Peters Valley will award four, full-tuition workshop scholarships to high school students. This scholarship also includes lodging (lab fees and meals are not included).

Art Teacher Scholarships: Peters Valley will award several half-tuition workshop scholarships to art teachers teaching in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and other learning institutions. The cost of the remaining tuition, lab fees and room and board are the responsibility of the workshop participant.

Work Exchange Program: A very limited number of students demonstrating proven skills will be granted the opportunity to work at Peters Valley doing various projects in exchange for workshop tuition, room and board. The projects are very specific and will include physical labor.

Artist Residency Program (Please note: deadline for this program is September 1, 2007): From November to the end of April, Peters Valley provides residency opportunities for practicing artists. These residencies may be one or two months in duration.
