I am not really sure how to do this but I have a huge favor to ask of you all. I am currently applying through UC Davis Study Abroad to do a summer study abroad trip. It's from July 1st - July 30th and it goes to England, France, and Italy. It is also directly related to my major and topics I have studied closely (how exciting is that?). Unfortunately, financial woes have got me down. I anticipate that I will get a good amount of financial aid coverage (the only time being poor is cool) but I won't even get to work that stuff out until I get accepted. But the chances of me being accepted are 99% for sure as it is basically just first come/first serve. Right now my issue is that I need to put in a $300 deposit with my application and I currently have $12.33 in my bank account. That is where you come in. I have a super awesome donation page open.
For $10 you can get a super awsometastical postcard sent by me to you from Europe! But wait there is more!
For $25 you can get THREE post cards send by me to you from England, France, AND Italy!
My financial goal is listed as $8000 because if accepted (and I will be) I would need more money to be able to afford the plane tickets (which you have to get before financial aid is processed) and other various fees. Also, UC Santa Cruz will only be providing me $1500 in aid which means I will need to cover almost all of the cost myself. But I will not be deterred! I will adjust the goal amount if/when I win scholarships and receive aid to reflect the amount I need to pay for myself.
And, of course, if for some unknown reason this doesn't happen (it will be happening) the money will be promptly refunded.
Even if you can't contribute I would love if you could reblog this so word gets out! Thank you so much guys and feel free to message me with any questions!
P.S. If you go to UC Santa Cruz I am selling cookies for $1 each!
