Study Opportunity in Germany

/patricia.williamshoffman My mom has always stressed the importance of education and I have been offered a wonderful opportunity to study abroad in Germany this spring.  I've always been encouraged to try new experiences and to make the most of every opportunity while I am young so that I have a broader knowledge base to make life decisions going forward. 

I am in the top twenty percent of my class, and maintain a full schedule with a 3.50 GPA. While I would love to be able to take advantage of this foreign opportunity, I will not be able to afford this without the help of a village.  I've been earning and saving my money, but sadly this will not be enough. 

My airfare, which I must make a commitment to soon, is approaching is approximately$1433, $1,300 Tuition & Transportation (rail passes & buses for field trips) which on a budget of $4,300 leaves me $1600 to cover food and personal usage for five/six weeks.
