In the 1965 film Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet – set in the year 2020 – the moon has been colonized and cosmonauts are on their way to Venus. (Spoiler alert: They land on the surface and do battle with, you guessed it, all manner of giant prehistoric beasts. Obviously.)

In real-life 2020, however, it’s been nearly 50 years since anyone’s set foot on the moon and nobody even talks about Venus. Thanks to COVID-19, your first year in design school is abruptly cut short, you have to stand in line outside of Trader Joe’s just to buy a banana, and you’re probably still waiting for that stimulus check. Which means you could probably use a couple of extra bucks right about now.

So how’s $1,000 toward next year’s tuition sound?

Look, we’re not the federal government. We can’t hand out money to just anybody. You have to earn it. You have to visit the official Helveticahaus scholarship application page and explain why you, more than anyone else, deserve the fame and glory – and all that sweet, sweet cash.

There’s just…one catch: You must be enrolled at SFCC as an incoming second-year graphic design student. But honestly, that’s pretty much all you have to do – that and provide us with some basic information, answer a few questions, and wait for the selection committee to render its verdict.

2020 was supposed to be the year of jetpacks and disintegration rays and antigravity belts. Instead, we got a pandemic and the worst recession since the Great Depression. But hey – we’ve still got money to give away. So what are you waiting for? Apply today.

And good luck!
