In order for me to accept the nomination, I must travel to D.C. and attend the congress there. The overnight tuition fee is $1585, which covers plane tickets, a hotel room, breakfast, and transportation to and from the Congress meetings. That said, I am going to need the extra money for other meals, traveling to places that are not the Congress, sight seeing, dress clothes, and other such things.
My mom can't afford the costs herself, and I wouldn't want to burden her with it to begin with. I am currently finding small ways to make my own money for the trip.
Accepting this nomination means that I have a chance at winning a full-ride, $185,000 medical scholarship, or a second place $10,000 medical scholarship.
This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I wouldn't forgive myself if I missed it.
(I need the money BEFORE July 31st)
