HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Oh, you’re so going to love this: It doesn’t cost you anything. In fact, we pay you.

I’M A STUDENT. CAN I GET COURSE CREDIT?

Probably. We have good relationships with many educational institutions, so ask whoever is in charge of those types of things at yours.

DO I GOTTA STAY FOR THE FULL EIGHT WEEKS?

First, bad grammar. Second, if you’re accepted but you can't stay the whole time, we can try to work something out with it. Darnit. Now we’re bad grammar.

WHAT ABOUT HOUSING? 

You’ve got a tent, right? Just kidding. But seriously housing is on you to both find and pay for. Fortunately, this a college town full of apartments with many rooms available. Yes, some of those rooms may have tapestries on their walls and empty pizza boxes in them, but we’re confident you can find something livable that fits your budget.

TRANSPORTATION?

Company cars for all Marty participants! Just kidding, again. Wow, this is getting so easy. Really, though, getting around is also up to you. Richmond has a bus system and we have parking options available near the agency, but you’ll have to pay for parking unless you want to move your car every 2 hours (you don’t want to do that). Also, we have bike parking right at the agency and if you ride a hoverboard that’s cool, too, and we respect it.

IS RICHMOND ONE OF THE COOLEST CITIES IN THE WORLD WITH A VIBRANT ART, MUSIC, AND FOOD AND BEER SCENE?

Yup. And we’ve got GWAR to thank for all of it.

DO I NEED TO BE A STUDENT?

Absolutely not. If you want to make amazing work, we want you. And if you just graduated this is a perfect next step

WHEN IS IT?

June 4, 2018 – August 10, 2018

WHEN IS THE APPLICATION DUE AND WHEN DO I HEAR BACK?

Applications are due on March 2, 2018.

WHAT IF I NEED TO KNOW MORE?

We'd love to hear from you. Email Marty Ritter at marty.ritter@martinagency.com

If you need to talk to a real person, call Marty Ritter at 804.698.8428.

(Are the names of this program and the person you have to contact both Marty? Yes. But we assure you that it’s not some elaborate Marty-centric conspiracy. It’s just a crazy coincidence where Marty’s parents and The Martin Agency planned this all out decades ago with an elaborate Marty-centric conspiracy. Good Marty to you.)
