Conlan Vance Textbooks for Harvard

$205 of $400 goal

Raised by 3 people in 69 months
My grandson, Conlan, was accepted by the Secondary Summer Program SSP at Harvard University in Cambridge MA. I am a single grandmother on SSA Disability, we are very low income. He got an $8,000.00 scholarship from Harvard which went toward the cost of the 7 week program. Family and Friends have helped cover the airfare and the balance of the program tuition and board.

I am now trying to raise $400.00 to cover the cost of at least two textbooks for his summer classes. He will be taking Introduction to Social Antropology and The Rhetoric of Freedom in America. The school starts June 22 2013 and ends August 10, 2013. Conlan turns 17 during his summer school. This would be the most magnificent birthday present WE could ever give Conlan. Please help me make his dream come true. I've raised Conlan since he was in Kindergarten - as well as his 3 siblings, two now in college and one on her own. Thank you SO VERY MUCH>

Conlan arrived at Cambridge June 22...only a few hours late...his flight left SeaTac nearly 2 hours late. He is having a great time...he and his roommates have a four day weekend...tomorrow they plan to go down to the Charles River and watch the Boston Pops July 4th show. Thank you all for your financial help and support. Linda

Questbridge had nearly 7,000 applications for help for summer programs at the 40 colleges and universities they work with....Conlan received word that if one of the three colleges/universities he listed as wanting to visit, invite him for a visit, it will be paid for by Questbridge. Yesterday, Conlan received an invitation from Carrolton College in Northfield Minnesota. And a voucher worth up to $250 towards travel expenses.It is listed as #8 on the top ten liberal arts colleges in the US. And has a great Anthropology program - the field he wants to study.

Hi, Conlan was accepted at Harvard's SSP program. He received a scholarship (waiver of fees) of $8,000.00. His airfare and the balance of the tuition, fees, board and room have been covered by loved ones. I forgot that he will need textbooks for his two classes. Can you help me raise the money? Thank you so very much.
