I am overwhelmed with excitement to have the opportunity to share the skills and knowledge I have obtained with other academicians around the world. However, I am currently transitioning between "poor student" status and "future professional." I have only been awarded a partial travel award for my trip to China. Though this was a huge blessing (individuals from the US are not usually given this scholarship), the cost of the trip is still too high for me to fund on my own. This truth also holds for travel to Africa. I am eager to journey to China and especially eager to make my first voyage to Africa engage in mutually beneficial exchanges and to visit the land of my ancestors "“ this would be a lifelong dream come true.
During this unique post-graduation time, I am working with my advisor to write publications and awaiting responses from jobs and/or post-doctoral fellowships. Unfortunately, I have not established a foundation to support myself for traveling opportunities such as these. It is for these reasons that I humbly request sponsorship to assist with my travels to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity. I have enclosed a spreadsheet of my expenses. Any assistance you are able to give to propel me, as an early career scholar will be forever appreciated.
