    1. The full scholarship is a tuition waiver. Scholarship recipients do not pay for the workshop but are responsible for everything else: lodging, accommodation, travel expenses, etc.

    1. You will have portfolio reviews with your instructors in your classes, so you can choose up to 2 other instructors to get reviewed by.
