Help Justin Study Abroad in China

My Story:

Coming from a low income family in a small town, I have never been able to travel very far. I feel like this 2 week study abroad program is the perfect oppurtunity to emmerse myself in a culture completely different than my own. My professors have been hounding students to take part in there China Study Abroad program at the University of Beijing where we learn "Business Issues in a Global Environment."The only problem with the trip is the cost. More than half can be covered by $3500 in scholarships, but even that does not cover the entire trip. I hope to be able to cover the majority of the costs so I can take part in this great educational experience in Beijing. The trip will be taking place July 6 - July 21. The university has given us an estimated cost for the program.

Estimated Program Costs:
TAMU-Commerce tuition and fees $793.00
Room & Board (Summer II) $1400.00
