2017 Summer Class Proposals

The PRNSA Field Institute is accepting class proposals for the Summer 2017 season!

Please fill out the PRNSA Field Institute: Class Proposal form in keeping with how you wish your class to be represented.

All class proposals for the Summer 2017 season (May 1st, 2017 through August 31st, 2017) must be submitted via the online PRNSA Field Institute: Class Proposal form no later than Monday, February 20th, 2017 at 6pm. Expect to hear from us by the end of February regarding your submitted class proposals for the Summer 2017 season. Please take note of the pay scale (explained below).

As of the upcoming Summer 2017 season, we are streamlining our instructor pay scale into one consistent model. Field Institute instructors receive a base fee of $150 for teaching a class, regardless of class length, plus 35% of ticket revenue (minus expenses and the $150 base fee.)

$150 + [35% of (ticket revenue minus $150)]

For example, instructor pay for a class costing $100 per ticket with 10 participants would come out to $447.50, per the following:

Ticket revenue: 10 x $100 = $1000
Ticket revenue minus base fee: $1000 - $150 = $850
35% of $850 = $297.50

Total pay (35% + base fee): $297.50 + $150 = $447.50

Please use this pay structure when considering your Proposed Non-Member Ticket Price and Preferred Maximum Enrollment below. PRNSA does not set a minimum; cancellation due to low enrollment will be at the discretion of PRNSA and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

This pay structure encourages instructors to partner with PRNSA in marketing their classes to share in the financial rewards of high enrollment.

Thank you all for contributions to this incredible landscape; as the rain continues to fall, we are excited for the bounty that spring and summer will bring.
