I received this email from the man himself few minutes ago.
Dear Iskandar,Liz in Boulder has kept me updated about your situation with funding and official procedures.I have a proposal for you that might be helpful. As you know I also teach a clown intensive in Norway this summer, from June 24th to July 20th. It corresponds to the Red Nose workshop that I teach in Boulder. You can check online for the details on my web site.It happens that we have a couple of scholarships that we are offering and we think that you could fit into one of them.It would be a consistent reduction: Liz would divert your deposit to this training and the rest of the tuition would be covered by the scholarship.You would have to take care of travel and accommodation.Please let me know if that would be an option for you.If so, please let me know as soon as possible, given the short time we have.Once confirmed you would proceed with your travel plans.You could come to Norway on a tourist Visa, or a student visa, and if necessary, we will provide certificate of enrollment for the training.Sincerely & best regardsGiovanni Fusetti
Seriously, it is a one in a million kind of offer! And frankly, I don't know what to do.
To raise funds for airfare & accommodation within 2 weeks is nearly impossible (If only if I could just cross out that "nearly im..."). And the fact that, I just started working and to ask for long leave is another nearly impossible!(Again, if only if I could just cross out this second "nearly im..." from the sentence).
I haven't got any clue on what to do next or even courage to reply to his email.
