THE STORY:

Three $1,000 scholarship awards will be given out to a 1st year college student, an upperclassman, and a graduate student in ANY creative field. Please help and #SupportCreativity in our 3rd year of running this scholarship.

During grad school I, Steve Lucin, discovered that I enjoyed mentoring students, especially those who wanted to learn more in creative fields. I became a college mentor at at East Harlem Tutorial Program where I helped a high school senior go through the college process. Applying to the schools went relatively smooth, but we hit a huge road block when it came to financial aid. The student was undocumented.

This particular student came to America when he was only 6 months old! All he knew was the American dream.

We searched for scholarships (because the FAFSA was out of the question for undocumented students), but everywhere we looked, the applicant either needed to have high grades (my mentee was an average B student), or had to be a U.S. citizen (which he was not). He was actually my best 3D animation student from the year before, so he had some specific creative skills, and this is what he wanted to study in college. We continued to search for creative scholarships, but yielded very limited results.

He felt helpless, as did I, and he wanted to drop out completely. I had to stay strong to support him. This is when I wished that I can provide a scholarship for him.

Thankfully he earned some scholarships from his high school and ended up going to a community college. I don’t want another fellow designer to feel helpless, and that is why the Halucinated Scholarship has been created.
