Program Stipends

Affording the MFA

Thanks to all of you for your input on the stipend ranking. I’ve updated the list to include the average rental pricing for a 1BR in the city as well as a link to a more comprehensive cost of living website for each city. My intention is to give you a quick glance at how viable a stipend may be. And so I’ve also changed the ranking to better reflect how far the money goes. However, right below the updated version, you’ll find the list ordered from greatest to least stipend just in case you’d like to see it.

How the ranking works: The yearly cost of the apartment rental is deducted from the total annual stipend amount.

Reblog: Sunday Lunch – Punjabi Style! — But I Smile Anyway…

Much as I love a traditional English roast dinner, complete with golden, crispy roast potatoes, slices of lamb with mint sauce, and lashings of gravy, there is another Sunday meal that we Punjabi’s tend to try not to miss… Aloo Parathas! These are a lightly fried potato filled bread which we eat traditionally with plain set […]

Reblog: upstreet downstreet san francisco — petescully

Here then are the final few sketches from last month’s San Francisco overnighter. These were drawn on the Sunday, after getting up and walking down to Mara’s Italian Pastries on Columbus for a delicious (but messy!)
