Study Abroad: Alaska to Italy!

$1,940 of $6,078 goal

Raised by 11 people in 35 months
I am Agnes, and I am a University of Alaska, Fairbanks Art Major. I am hoping to study abroad for a few reasons. One is to work on getting more credits during the summer, but another is to visit Italy where my Great-Grandmother was born.

The $9840 is for the program costs, flights between Alaska and Rome, and a passport. Anything additional funds will be used while in Italy for art supplies, food, and any additional unforeseen travel costs. 

I have always wanted to travel to Italy since I was little, but as I've gotten older and learned more about my Great-Grandmother, known as Paula amongst family, I realized how much I missed out on when she died due to Alzheimer's when I was 6. My favorite art piece to this day is a charcoal she drew of a harbor near where she lived in Fall River, Massachusetts.


I appreciate any support you can give to help me get to Italy!

I fly out Sunday. If anyone would like to donate, that would be very much appreciated. I stuck my car in the shop last week so that $300 dollars I was not expecting to spend. Also, if you're wanting to send money while I'm over there you can donate here.

Thanks to everyone who donated, and I will be making the appreciation gifts when I get back!

Hello all! I recently updated the amount I need because I received a student discount through a travel agent on my flights and used points! However, there is still a gap. please message, or comment, if you're able to post a flyer to help! Only around 4 grand to go!

Because I am nowhere close to my goal by 30 days out, I've changed my application so I am only taking 1 class instead of 2, which reduces tuition by $3000. I am still $400 away from what I need by the end of the month to pay the school, but I do need the rest ASAP to buy tickets while the prices are low. If you donate air miles, I will count $1/mi so that you can still receive the incentives listed below. (check campaign description for a How To)
You don't need to donate a lot. There've been 100 views on this. Even $10 a person would help.
And I am still working and putting any extra money into savings, but the extra $20-$50 will not get me there in time.
