Financial aid for arts administration graduate students comes from a combination of fellowship funds and graduate assistantship positions offered by the program in various arts venues on campus and in the Bloomington community.
All Arts Administration full-time students are awarded a fellowship of $1700 per semester (for three (3) on-campus semesters), provided the student stays in good-standing with the college and continues in the program.
The Arts Administration program coordinates assistantships working 10-15 hours per week with local and campus arts venues. While an assistantship is not guaranteed to every MAAA student, a variety of options are available. For example, in 2012-2013, IU Arts Administration graduate students will work on campus in venues such as the African American Arts Institute, the IU Art Museum, the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, and the Jacobs School of Music. In the city, Arts Administration students help manage such organizations as the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, the Bloomington Playwright's Project, the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, the Bloomington Entertainment Arts District (BEAD), and Stages Bloomington. These assistantships are funded through federal work-study aid and in order to be eligible for the award, you must be eligible for federal work-study aid. In order to be eligible for federal work-study aid, a student must fill out a FAFSA form online.
