Work Study Students


Watering the Folk School's garden
Work Study Students live as a group at the Folk School for nine weeks. During the nine-week session they work five of the weeks and take weeklong classes for four of the weeks. They are also eligible for weekend classes on a space-available basis. Work Studies receive room and board during their stay and have access to the full range of classes listed in the catalog with tuition covered (note: materials fees are specific to each class and are the responsibility of the student).

We are currently accepting applications for the following session:

Session 10: October 13 - December 14 (until filled)

At this time there is only one Work Exchange option available:

Garden Crew
Garden Crew work is mostly outdoors on the gardens and grounds, but there are other duties as well which may include weekends. Garden Crew participants must be in good physical condition and be able to perform occasional strenuous tasks in a variety of weather conditions.
