Apprentices can expect to work 40-50 hours per week with some weekends and evening hours required.  Apprentices will receive a weekly stipend, housing, and food as outlined below:

  • $185 per week stipend and an additional $25 per week bonus to be paid at the conclusion of the season
  • On-campus studio apartment (includes utilities, internet and cable, taxes apply)
