Academic and funding opportunities

“Constructing a curriculum has been beneficial for my own conceptual outlook. It’s exciting to be a part of the discourse within the class and benefit from the myriad approaches students bring.”

Vital support for professional practice

Graduate students at RISD take advantage of a wide range of financial aid and opportunities for career development, including teaching experiences, research assistantships and grants for projects and participation in conferences. By collaborating on faculty-guided research, taking advantage of travel funding or creating new courses to teach during Wintersession, degree candidates become better prepared to share their studio practice across a range of contexts.
