The study abroad program in Barbados offers participants the opportunity to explore Barbados while providing service to local communities. While in Barbados, I will be enrolled in courses including: HDFS 367 (Culture in Context), HDFS 334 (Experiential Education), and HDFS 365 (Experiential Learning).
I am currently supporting myself through school and rely on student loans. Unfortunately, I did not receive any financial aid or study abroad scholarships to participate in this program. However, I would hate to miss out on this first-time experience to travel out of the country. As Matthew 7:7 states, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”. I created this page because I am passionate about this experience and I am willing to do whatever it takes to make this possible. Will you help me?
The cost for this trip is estimated at $8,000. The break down is as follows:
Estimated Tuition $1,985.00
Estimated Program Fee $4,500.00
UD Registration & Activities Fee $30.00
Meals, Transportation, etc. $2,000.00
To date, I have managed to pay a $2,000 deposit with money from summer employment and donations from family members. I truly would appreciate any donations made to help me fund this once in a lifetime opportunity. Thank you in advance for your support!
