While have made every effort to make this program as affordable as possible, and the course fee can be paid over 10 weeks, we know that there are people who it would benefit that still can’t afford it. And so, we’ve created the Art of Freelance scholarship and work study program.

And yes, you can fill out an application for both.


In an effort to diversify the people who are telling stories in our world today, we are launching a scholarship for female, female-identifying, and non-binary identifying photographers for our Spring 2018 course. The course aims to support and empower early career women photographers with an opportunity to clarify their big picture goals and career path.

We believe that if one group of people controls the narrative, too many stories go untold. 

The scholarship will support the creation of work with a female or non-binary perspective. People of color and the LGBTQI community are encouraged to apply. Our hope is that this scholarship helps to combat sexism within the industry.

The Scholarship Program and the Art of Freelance course offers the structure and accountability needed to develop the necessary skills and expertise for recipients to create, shape, plan and execute their dream project in ten weeks. The Art of Freelance Scholarship Program is designed to: 

  • Provide an opportunity for students to develop their portfolio with work they want to do and be hired for.
  • Provide access to a global community of other creatives providing feedback, support, encouragement, and inspiration.
  • Be a part of a proven framework that results in consistent and focused action with real time results.
  • Empower women by giving them the opportunity, resources, and support to become industry leaders.
  • Diversify the people who are telling stories

Please fill out an application by April 4, 2018 to be considered for the scholarship. We will be offering partial and full scholarships to our Spring 2018 course.

Thanks for your interest.


In addition to the scholarship, we have a limited amount of work-study positions available. Our work-study program requires 20 hours of in-person assistance to the Art of Freelance office located in Highland Park, Los Angeles and/or online assistance. 

Duties include general admin assistance, postcard distribution, research, event set up and clean up, office errands, and community outreach. If you’re interested, please click the button below.
