How to Apply

Applications are open for 2015!


We welcome motivated, self-directed learners of any technical skill level -- from complete beginner to advanced. We have had students of all types: high school students, artists, engineers, graduate students and professionals of all fields.

Here are the steps required for application to the program:

  1. Complete the Fab Academy Application form.
    First, fill out the application here.
    Note that this application is hosted by the international coordination team in Barcelona. When you come to the second stage of the application select Providence (US) when asked "Which Fab Lab are you applying for?". We'll receive your application soon after you submit it. The deadline is November 30th, 2014 and applicants will hear back about acceptance by the second week of December.

  2. Meet with the Providence Fab Academy Instructor.
    After you submit the application you will be contacted by the Providence Fab Academy instructor to set up a interview.

  3. Your application will be reviewed by the Fab Academy staff and accepted students will be notified by December 10th.

  4. Pay the Deposit
    Because space is limited, we ask that accepted Fab Academy students make a deposit of the first two weeks tuition in order to hold their seat in the program.
