MFA Student Interview Series | Kimmie Pledger

Posted by Jessica Todd

What is your best piece of financial advice for potential and/or current MFA students?

I don’t recommend getting a job while you are in grad school – there just isn’t time. I took out a loan but that isn’t always the way to go. Work hard to make and save money before you start school. Once grad school started, I began making work to sell over the summer, Christmas break, spring break, etc. An Etsy shop is great way to earn money. Use your studio access to your advantage to create work to sell, but concentrate on your grad work first.
