Financial status is not a consideration in the admissions process, and financial need should not deter artists from applying for admission. You must be at least 21 years of age at the start of the program and have a working knowledge of English.

Semi-private workspace in shared studios
Fees and support
Tuition for Skowhegan’s nine-week program is $6,000. If admitted then participants will also be required to pay an additional $75 activities fee. The goal of Skowhegan’s financial assistance program is to help ensure that artists accepted into the program may participate, regardless of their financial status. All participants are expected to make some amount of financial contribution to their experience. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for a self-determined amount of financial aid through the online application.
Expectations towards the artist
Artists are expected to remain on Skowhegan’s campus during the entire nine-week session.
