This is a pretty big, once in a lifetime opportunity that is coming with a pretty big, once in a lifetime price tag.
Much of the expense will be covered by scholarships, grants, and federal aid, but there will still be a sizeable gap between those funds and what will be required to cover full-time tuition, room, board, books, supplies and relocation for the spring semester. This is the number reflected in the goal.
Being a nontraditional student, funding opportunities outside the school are difficult to come by for the first semester due to not having a recent GPA or any of the other qualifiers that most accrue through high school or a recent stent higher education.
Once I have been able to relocate, get a full semester under my belt, and accrue a GPA I will be eligible for more aid as well as better work opportunities to subsidize my income.
So, all of this is to say, I know that the goal is large but the Gofundme piece is but one avenue of my overall fundraising campaign. There will also be a going away-fundraiser party that you are invited to*** (www.facebook.com/events/135008440559260). I am doing my best to fill every hour I can of the day with work through the end of December (let me know of any gigs). And I will still be searching for private grants and scholarships (if you have any leads on those I am all ears).
I thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make be it monetary or leads/advice. Every little bit counts. This is perhaps one of the greatest undertakings of my life and accomplishing it is within my reach. That is, with a little help from my friends.
Thank you for your consideration and be well!
