Advising runs from March 11-April 12, and all students must meet with an advisor before registering for courses. During your 30-minute advising appointment, we will review program requirements and create a tentative plan for your fall courses and degree completion. BFA students may meet with either Eli or Tobias prior to registration. Students may want to meet with Eli if they want guidance on studio course selection or time management and study strategies. Students may want to meet with Tobias if they are a Northeastern student, haveaccommodations, or would like to get accommodations for a disability. Combined Degree students should contact Robin Olinsky for Fall 2019 advising.
To schedule an appointment with Eli Brown, visit or email Colin Buckley at the Student Services Desk at email@example.com. To schedule an appointment with Tobias Bennett, book your appointment through go.tufts.edu/SMFAAdvisor. We strongly encourage you to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.

A project description, not exceeding 500 words in length. You may wish to discuss the specific goals you have for the project and how it fits with your ongoing artistic practice.
The amount of funding requested, with information about how the money would be or was spent. (This information can be part of your project description.)
Three to five sample images of your work.
Successful applications will:
Provide a coherent, compelling, well-written description of the project for which funding is being requested;
Include images of work that display obvious signs of promise/progress;
Offer a clear justification for the amount of funding being requested, including evidence of pricing out supplies, travel, and other necessities;
