Am I eligible for study funding?

0 answers

Dear Sir/ Madam, I am a stonemason of about 15 years experience. After many years of work I find that stone carving is becoming physically too demanding on my body, particularly my hands from using machine and hand tools and I am looking to move my career in a different direction before I suffer permanent damage. During the last few years I have undertook some sculpture restoration in stone and ceramic and it is this area I would like to focus on. To work at the level I would like, I feel it would be of massive benefit for me to study classical sculpture and to improve my draftsmanship, and to this end I have applied to study the two year program at the Academy of Art, Barcelona. I wondered if this is the type of training your organisation funds, and if so, how do I apply? A link to the Art Academy is below, and also a link to my website so you can see my previous work. If this is not the kind of funding you offer can you recommend any other organisations? http://academyofartbarcelona.com/ www.will-whitmore.com Thanks!

Past experience of obtaining the travel grant when parental income is over the 40,000 threshold?

1 answers

Was wondering if anyone has experience of this who's combined household income is over 40k and whether they got any travel grant? I'm expecting to have expenses regarding visas, flights and health insurance of around £3000 for my year abroad. My dad is retiring in August which will take a lot of income away however the combined income will be around 55k still after this. The problem is, for the tax year this year, he will have been paid in full for 6 months which pushes the amount up quite a lot - would this be considered in assessing whether I am eligible for the travel grant as by the time I leave for the US (mid August) he won't be working and household income will be around the 55k per year mark It's all very confusing however I could really do with the travel grant!

I'm in the middle of researching places to live during my term in Paris and I've come across Résidence Saint-Jaques in the 14th arrondissement.

I'd be extremely grateful for any help you can offer! Here's the link in case there are other Saint-Jacques I don't know about: https://logement.clubetudiant.com/properties/residence-saint-jacques/#dossier
