So, how have people gone about funding their jewelry arts education?
Of course there is good hard work, but I live in an economic black
hole and most schools cost triple my annual salary so that isn’t
going to do it this time. I am trying to find loans, financial aid,
etc for trade schools like Revere. Revere in particular has no
financial aid and isn’t qualified by the government for traditional
programs like the FASFA. They suggested I take out a personal loan
and that isn’t a great plan for me as I am young, have no credit or
collateral. I would prefer a good ol’ student loan that any Joe shmoe
can get and doesn’t have an outrageous APR based on my non-existent
credit history. I hate the idea that my educational choices might be
limited by the fact that some schools aren’t included in some
government definition of “school”.
