Grants and Student resources Inquiry
I'm a recent high school graduate who has a passion for both science and art. I want to pursue a career as a scientific illustrator, however my parents find the prospect of putting me through college nearly impossible even though I asked to attend Sheridan since it is considerably cheaper than most other options in North America. They also don't believe me when I say that the job prospects for a scientific illustrator are much better than those of other art majors which makes it increasingly difficult for me to convince them to allow me to attend.
Because of this, I was wondering if the guild knows of any resources for students like me that will help me pay for my career. I read your grants and awards page, but many of those accommodate current college students or graduates.
It would be fantastic if I could get some help or at least a point in the right direction. This career is something I feel really adamant in pursuing and I'd hate to give it up due to monetary problems.
Thank you in advance for your help.
