Emily is studying abroad this July!

I’m so excited! I have been accepted into the Study Abroad program!  From the first day of orientation, my advisors have encouraged all the students to take advantage of the study abroad programs.  Knowing how competitive the business world can be, having international experience will set me apart from other job applicants when I enter the corporate world.

For those of you who don’t already know, I am a second semester Junior.  I am working on my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing with a concentration in Sports Marketing.  If everything goes as planned, I will graduate in May 2019.    The course I am taking is Applied Business Economics.  The program will take place in both London and Berlin.  

I am starting an internship within the TTU Athletic Department this semester which will make it hard for me to work.  I am applying for grants and financial aid; however, the aid will only cover a portion of the fees.  Below, I have included a breakdown of the costs associated with the program.  I hope you will consider donating towards my goal for such an enriching educational opportunity.  If you cannot donate money, but can donate airline miles, advice or anything relevant to the trip, I greatly appreciate it.

Costs that I paid with my savings:
Application fee $50
Program Fee Deposit $1000
TTU Education Abroad Fee $200
Passport $140
Apartment Rent for time away $1200
Total $2590
Costs covered by Financial Aid:
TTU Tuition $1127
Health Insurance $40
Books / Course Materials $100
Personal Expenses $300
Total $1567
Funds needed (through donation/scholarship):
Program fee minus the deposit $4185
Meals not covered (Lunch & Dinner) $880
Airfare $1800
Total $6785
