I need your help to accomplish my educational goal. With your help, once I obtain my degree, I will represent 3% of the population in this country. My background as an Indigenous American means I will represent .6% of MFA graduates. The percentage drops further if we combine my major and gender.
I have reached my loan limits for financial aid funding at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). With terrible last minute cuts in the CSU and in financial aid, I need $6,000 more to complete the very last six (6) of my thesis units required to complete my Master of Fine Arts, Studio Arts Program. Because my program is specialized, if I drop out at this juncture, to return later would mean I would need to repeat half of my coursework!
The Master of Fine Arts Graduate Studio program at CSULA is a terminal degree, with a rigorous 92+unit program customized to meet the needs of the individual. I have maintained a GPA of 3.8 in my program and need two to three quarters to graduate by Winter or Spring of 2014.
I need your help to accomplish my goals. I live in relative poverty and cannot continue my educational goals without your assistance. I cannot limit nor add to my part-time job hours nor abruptly end my full-time MFA program. Please consider donating what ever you can to help.
