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.
