Allison's Study Abroad in Australia


I am Allison Chinnery, a rising Junior at the University of Delaware and I am studying Civil Engineering with a minor in Aerospace Military Leadership (AFROTC).

As you may be aware, I have been accepted to study abroad this coming winter (31 Dec 16 – 2 Feb 17) in Australia.  This once-in-lifetime opportunity to take two classes required for my major is not cheap however.  The two courses I will be studying, Transportation Engineering and Fluid Mechanics, are being taught only in Australia over the winter since Melbourne, Australia is an a multi-modal city in regards to transportation, and the university where we will be studying at has state-of-the-art fluids facilities.

The total cost of travel, excursions, accommodations, food and most importantly the classes is a whopping $9,650 - $5,540 for tuition, $2,610 for the airline, $1,500 additional expenses.  With the cost of going to college year-round, being in AFROTC, and the lack of scholarships that I qualify for, I need as much help as I can get, as full payment is due 1 October 2016. 

If you feel so inclined to help me out, I would greatly appreciate it and I promise to send you a postcard while I am down there too!

Thank you again!
