COME join us! There are many ways you can assist. What our volunteers and donors have in common is a shared goal of furthering educational opportunities in the arts. Each person/indiviual makes a personal choice about how they can be of service. And no matter how you choose to contribute, your involvement will be greatly appreciated.

There are many ways to give, and we’ve just listed a few. When you choose to join our ranks, whether by volunteering or with financial support, you make a difference in the lives of students.

Work Study Scholarships

Work study Scholarships

Work study assignments are awarded to qualified individuals who may need help in meeting the expense of an ESSA workshop. Work study assignments vary depending upon the needs of the campus.

Upon completion of 30 hours of work, 30 hours of workshop tuition will be provided to the student-employee. Workshop material fees and supplies are not included in the tuition award and must be paid by the work study participant. All workshop placements are based upon availability.

You may also continue to volunteer beyond your 30 hours of work study (thank you!!!), but ESSA may only offer a total of 30 hours of complimentary workshop time per person per year.

Applicants must submit: Complete work study application form, explanation of qualifications and intent, and the goals that you hope to achieve in the workshop for which you are applying. (2 page maximum)
