I have decided to study abroad this summer in Paris, France. My trip will be operated under the University System of Georgia. The program will last for 5 weeks, from June 30th to August 4th. I will be taking classes for 6 credit hours at the Institut Protestant De ThÃ©ologie. I chose to participate in the study abroad program because it will add a distinguishing factor to my resume, which can increase the likelihood of acceptance to graduate school and future employment prospects. My schedule will include Monday and Wednesday classes, along with Tuesday and Thursday field trips and tours associated with my classes. This leaves Fridays through Sundays as "free days" to explore Paris, the rest of France, and the neighboring countries such as Spain and Italy.
As I'm sure you know, studying abroad is very expensive and I will have to raise a lot of money for this to be possible. The cost of the trip is $4,990, which includes round-trip airfare between Atlanta and Paris, housing in France, five meals per week, a health insurance policy, and a pass for unlimited travel on the Paris Metro and bus systems. It is strongly suggested that students also bring about $1,000 spending money for meals, souvenirs, tours, and day trips. I have already received a scholarship for $850 and I am currently looking and applying for more scholarships. However, my deadlines are rapidly approaching, the first being March 8th and the second being April 8th.
So what I am asking is if you all could contribute monetary donations towards my trip. Anything will help and would be greatly appreciated.
