Work Study Students live as a group at the Folk School for nine weeks. During a nine week session they work six of the weeks and take weeklong classes for three of the weeks. They are also eligible for weekend classes on a space-available basis. The work is mostly outdoors on the gardens and grounds, but there are other duties as well which may include weekends. Work Study Students must be in good physical condition and be able to do sometimes strenuous labor in all kinds of weather conditions.

The number of work study positions is limited. Please note that applicants not accepted into a session may be invited to reapply for a subsequent session. Applicants are generally selected and notified about four months before each session starts. Application fee is good for one year.
