I am a university student who is pretty involved with EA. I have been engaging with the community for about a year now, and the movement has helped me make better decisions about my career and what I want to do.
I recently got into EAG Bay Area, and I am extremely excited at the prospect of meeting people and exchanging ideas. I will also be taking a gap year next year, so this could be a great time to go and help me figure out what I want to do.
Combining flights and accommodation, it will be over what I am comfortable with as a university student. Are there any ideas on where I can apply for (at least some) funding? My total budget is under $1.5k USD, and will be flying out of Toronto.
I am aware CEA offers some support, but they have explicitly mentioned operating under the assumption that they will not be able to give most applicants funding.
Yeah totally! Planning to go to EAG Bay Area, and I go to school at McMaster University and will be flying out of Toronto.
