Student Work-Study

The Yuma Symposium Board of Directors is once again offering a limited number of work-study positions for students at this years symposium. We invite educators of all disciplines to nominate one student for a FREE REGISTRATION to attend the event. In exchange students will be assigned small tasks during the symposium. Responsibilities include setting up for presentations, handling audio-visual equipment, assisting the presenters and helping with the final night dinner and cleanup. Its a great way for students to connect with each other, professionals in their fields and the presenters. Work-study recipients must be dependable, enthusiastic, and have NOT received a nomination at past symposiums.   

Registration includes entry to all presentations, the student exhibition, Show Your Stuff and the final night dinner and dance. Motels are within easy walking distance and are inexpensive. There is also a “bring your own tent” camping area where there are usually some impromptu evening social activities around a bonfire. This is an event organized primarily by artists, for artists and we encourage you to encourage your students to explore this exciting once a year opportunity.

Professors are encouraged to attend with their students but this is not a requirement for the student work-study opportunity. If you have more then one interested student, encourage a colleague to nominate them.

Work-study acceptance is on a first come, first serve basis. To nominate one of your students and secure them a space, please fill out the
application form by Friday, January 31, 2022.

Nominated students will be contacted directly with a letter of welcome and work-study instructions soon after the January 31st deadline.
