I will be studying abroad in The Netherlands this summer to further my education in cultural communication. Unfortunately, financial aid is not offered during the summer semester and I received all the scholarships and grants I could have but I am still $4,000 short.
This gofundme is for family and friends to donate to my education. While abroad, I will be taking a senior level course in intercultural communication as well as an interdisciplinary credit for reflection on my experience. (To learn more about the program, visit this link: http://studyabroad.illinoisstate.edu/destinations/netherlands/media/) The money I raise will be used to pay for my tuition and plane ticket.
Studying abroad is something that cannot be supplemented in the classroom. Everyone I have talked to about their experiences abroad says it's an opportunity I must take if I can afford it. Unfortunately, working two part time jobs and one unpaid internship does not nearly make a dent in these expenses. This is why I need your help.
In addition to financial help, I am also requesting good thoughts and prayers for safe travels. It's a crazy world we live in today!
Thank you for your time and consideration!
