My name is Sarah and I am currently completing
my Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Education from Plattsburgh State College. I
have a 3.93 GPA and am president of my schools chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an international
honor society in Education. I was recently invited to participate in a European
Short-term Study Abroad Program that will take place this coming summer. This
is a unique opportunity to travel and learn aboard the Semester at Sea ship.
The over three-week voyage will travel to England, Norway, Sweden, Russia,
Latvia, Denmark, and Germany. The trip will explore the education systems in
the countries visited and how they influenced education in the United States.
We will see how the history and culture of each country contributed to its
education system and how current globalization efforts are changing those
systems today. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity that will help me
become a more competitive candidate for future teaching positions and help me
to become a better teacher. I currently go to school full time and work part
time. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to go without financial assistance. I need
your help to turn this dream into a reality. Every little bit will be greatly
