Koc Scholarship for Curatorial Practice
To educate and train promising young curators who are committed to shaping Turkey's cultural life, California College of the Arts and Vehbi Koc Foundation have partnered to create the Koc Scholarship.
Beginning fall 2013 CCA will award one annual Koc Scholarship to an outstanding student who at the time of application to the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice is a Turkish citizen residing in Turkey.
The Curatorial Practice admissions committee will select the recipient based on the strength of the applicant's graduate application.
The Koc Scholarship funds the full cost of CCA graduate tuition and nontuition fees (including required CCA health insurance, registration fee, and student activity fee). The recipient also will receive up to $800 per month for living expense support.
The scholarship is renewable for the second year of the program.
See Scholarships for more information.
As an international student you are permitted to work on campus part time. If you are interested in finding a job, see Work-Study.
