Carolyne Mas  PEARCE, AZ
My name is Carolyne Mas . I am a 61-year-old former recording artist and musician, who is currently an honors student with a 4.08 GPA enrolled at Arizona State University, where I am pursuing a BS in Integrative Health, and I was recently inducted into the National Society for Collegiate Scholars's ASU chapter. I am also a member of Phi Theta Kappa international Honor Society, and have been awarded a scholarship to attend the International Scholar Laureate Program for Nursing and Healthcare in Johannesburg, South Africa, this coming May. A sample of the itinerary can be seen by clicking here .

This $3000 Scholarship covers most of my tuition, but it does not cover the flights, the $200 to receive college credit through George Mason University , or the three-day cultural extension afterwards, which I would very much like to participate in. You can see a breakdown of the tuition costs by visiting the International Scholar Laureate website, and following the links provided there. The breakdown is also in the email that I received from the program, which you can view by clicking here .

Those of you who are familiar with my music and who have been following my career for years, know how very hard I have been working to take my life in this new and exciting direction. This trip means the world to me, and it is an honor to have been invited to attend. I need your help in order to make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity. I have until April 1st to raise the money for tuition, the rest will go towards the flights.

After a week of mourning my brother's death, I am back to raising funds in order to attend the International Scholar Laureate Program in Health and Nursing in South Africa this May. Although I received a scholarship from the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, it does not cover all of the costs.

After an incredibly rough week due to the death of my brother, today I am getting back to the details of my life. I am once again posting my GoFundMe for the International Scholar Laureate Program in South Africa this May. I have received a scholarship that covers some of the cost, but not all of it.

With thanks for your music, and those great shows at JB Scott's in Albany, New York long long ago.
