In the highly individualized low-residency MFA program students create their
own course 
of study working on art and research projects off-site with the support of
faculty and self-
chosen artist mentors. The independent study is complemented by three
intensive summer 
residencies where lectures, critiques, seminars, performances, exhibitions,
and workshops 
take place on-site in Europe. The low-residency format permits continuing a
life while participating in the program. Scholarships are given on the basis
of artistic merit 
and financial need. All media and genres. Deadline for scholarships and rolling 
admissions: May 1, 2008.
