        Hi Jennifer,

        We received your scholarship application. The deadline for the applications is May 15 and we’ll announced the scholarship recipients no later than Wednesday, May 18. Thanks for your inquiry!

    1. Hey Jimmy… is there or will there be a link to any recordings of the MasterLab sessions?? I wanted to link them on my blog if they are available. Just didn’t know where to search for them. And I didn’t know if Periscope archived either. Let me know via email or blog comment or reply… whatever. 😉 THANKS!!
