Regensburg or Bust!

I am a 45 year old PhD student (I'm ABD: "All but dissertation") in philosophy writing a dissertation on a German theologian, Joseph Ratzinger (aka, Pope Benedict XVI). Also, I'm an Episcopal priest (from Texas) who will be on sabbatical from all pastoral duties during the summer of 2018. I am looking for funding to spend up to ten weeks at the Pope Benedict XVI Study Center in Regensburg, Germany, doing primary research (in German) on my dissertation. But to do this, I need to raise $10,000 for related expenses (room, board, a 2-wk. intensive language course, etc.). Thanks in advance for your consideration & help! Matt
