You make. You teach. We pay.

In line with the school’s belief that graduate study in art should be accessible to students from a diverse range of backgrounds and practices, Mason Gross School of the Arts awards all incoming graduate students a fellowship the equivalent of full out-of-state tuition in the first year and full in-state tuition for the second year of the program (International students continue to receive out-of-state tuition in their second year).  Combined with large private studios and the resources of a major public research university, this funding gives students the opportunity to fully focus on their work within a stimulating and supportive community of equals.

Teaching & mentorship opportunities
Additional financial support comes in the form of teaching assignments upon completion of a semester-long teaching mentorship under Faculty supervision.

In addition, The Mentorship Program in Visual Arts pairs graduate students with undergraduate thesis students for an academic year. The program fosters guidance and support for undergraduates during their senior year, deepening artistic dialogue and strengthening connections across the diverse student body.

About the program
The MFA program was established in 1960 as the first non-disciplinary specific fine art graduate program in the USA. This fulltime 60-credit degree program offers seminars in painting, sculpture, photography, media, printmaking, and art theory. Students can also take courses across the University. Each MFA candidate receives private studio space to work in that is available year-round, 24/7 for the duration of their study. Graduate students have numerous opportunities to mount exhibitions in the school’s 4,200 sq. ft. gallery space that is dedicated to showcasing student work.
