Hi @schutton,
I hope you’re doing ok.
I applied for the 2023 Maker Literacies Immersion Program and I also registered for scholarship consideration. Since I haven’t gotten any reply, I thought it wise to confirm from you if I made the scholarship list.

I look forward to your kind response .



That is wonderful to hear! I will reach out to the organizers. :+1:t4:

Found out that many have been received - and are currently under review.

Ok. Thank you very much. I’ll be looking to get a mail from the organizers.
