Student Host 

Student Hosts hold a unique and important role at the Folk School and are involved in the overall life of the school for several months. Serving as ambassadors, Hosts help students and instructors have a rewarding, creative, and comfortable experience, guiding them as they adjust to the living, dining, and studio experience unique to the Folk School. Hosts receive housing and meals during their stay and can take classes every week with tuition covered.

Applications for 2023 Student Hosts will be open from August 8 through September 18, 2022.

They primarily contribute through work in the garden, grounds, and/or the dining hall. Program sessions include 6-12 people at a time and last from 6-8 weeks.

Applications for 2023 Work Study sessions will be open from August 8 through September 18, 2022.
