Our scholarship positions give students an opportunity to participate in classes and contribute to the school with means alternate to financial contribution. We ask applicants to propose a project that they would like to contribute that highlights their personal skillset – for example, we have had students offer photography for a season of classes in exchange for a class, marketing material for fundraising efforts, a zine that highlights a yearly class, garden-based projects, construction projects, and consulting in a variety of areas.

Scholarships cover a portion of tuition and lodging fees and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
