Assistantships and Recognitions
Department of Art and Design - Studio Art (MFA)
A limited number of Graduate Assistantships and Technical Assistantships are available to University graduate students, providing a waiver of tuition and fees and/or a monetary stipend. In the MFA program, GA's are assigned to a particular studio area (e.g. ceramics, sculpture) depending on the student's area of interest and needs of the studio areas. GA's and TA's typically work 15 hours per week as Studio Managers and Lab Assistants under the supervision of a studio area head and the MFA Director.
Apart from assistantships, students and alumni of the program have received many recognitions and support towards their accomplishments including Joan Mitchell Foundation grants, solo exhibitions in New York galleries and critical reviews by major press.
