How much does it cost to attend?

Tent programs are free to accepted applicants, and we cover accommodations and most of your meals. Your only cost is transportation to and from the city where the program is taking place.

Did you receive my application?

Automatic reply emails are generated when an application is submitted. If you did not receive an email, call 413-256-4900 x103.

When will I hear if I got in?

Acceptances are sent out three months before the program’s start date.

I am on the waitlist. Will I get in?

There are only twenty spots for each program. We receive more applications than we have places. We'll let you know if a spot becomes available.

I’m really busy and cannot attend the whole program. Is that okay?

You’re expected to fully participate in the full week of programming. (Take a week of vacation, if necessary; the program will be worth it.) If you cannot attend the session in full, you must decline acceptance.

I already attended a Tent program. Can I apply to another program?
