Financial Aid

Mudflat is pleased to be able to offer financial aid to adults and children who wish to participate in our classes and workshops.

We have established 4 funds that support this opportunity.

  • The John McCooey Fund and the Ellen Schorr Fund both provide financial aid for adults enrolling in classes and workshops.

  • The Judith Fuchel–Mahler Fund provides financial aid for adult students enrolling in handbuilding or sculpture classes specifically.

  • The Elee Koplow Fund provides financial aid to children, as well as a parent (or other adult) and a child, taking classes and workshops at Mudflat.

These Funds are supported in part by many generous individuals who have made financial contributions in memory of John McCooey, a longtime Mudflat student; Ellen Schorr, a Mudflat founder; Judith Fuchel-Mahler, artist; and Elee Koplow, a Mudflat studio artist and faculty member. The Funds are also supported by the sale of raffle tickets at our two Open Studio events each year. Mudflat artists, faculty members and students donate pottery for our popular raffles.

Financial aid awards are given for partial (up to 50%) tuition of a class or workshop. Because Mudflat has a limited amount of money available for financial aid, we can only make a small number of awards each semester and students are eligible to receive one award each calendar year. Financial aid for children may be limited to one child per family per semester. Financial aid applications will be evaluated on clearly demonstrated need, the individual’s commitment to clay, and award history.

If you are in need of financial assistance so that you may attend one of our classes or workshops, please fill out the application form. For more information, please contact the Director.

Be sure to register for a class as soon as registration opens if you will be applying for financial aid so that if we can make an award to you, you will already be enrolled.

​Payment is not due when registering. When signing up for class, use the coupon code FINAIDAPRIL in order to not pay for your enrollment up front.   
If we cannot award financial aid to you, you can drop from the class with no penalty before our class drop deadline.
If we can award financial aid to you, we will invoice you for your tuition. 
Financial Aid Applications for the Spring/Summer 2024 Semester are due by April 1, 2024
