While I am working closely with Esurance to ensure that I receive Pete's maximum value (230,000 miles still raises eyebrows), I have some significant financial hurdles ahead of me, such as renting a car in the meantime ($150/week) but mainly saving for a new one (or at least a down payment). This is especially difficult right now because I do not get my assistantship stipend during the summer months. Being in graduate school fulltime is tough for many reasons, but arguably most because you are living a working professional's life on a college student's income.
And so, I decided to start this fund to solicit help from family, friends, and even strangers with a heart for giving to broke doctoral students. Please know that I am not looking for hundreds of dollars from each person. I am thrilled if you feel you have $5, $10, or $20 to give - it all adds up! Also, if you feel uncomfortable about making your donation public (I sometimes do), please feel free to do it anonymously and/or send me an email.
