Help Me Study Abroad

I would like to study abroad this summer with my school, University of West Florida (UWF) in Pensacola, FL. This study abroad opportunity is through the Catalyst Program, http://catalyst.globalizedu.com/ . I was offered a scholarship of $750 towards the tuition of this program, however that is only a small bit that can contribute to the total of $7,000 plus other fees, such as plane tickets, meals, and every other expense that comes from traveling abroad. 

This program includes a course from my major, Psychology, which is very rare in study abroad programs. The other course I will be taking is about the Holocaust, in which I will be taken to concentration camps and learn first hand what happened to my Jewish ancestors during World War II. This part of the program is very special to me, in that I've only been taught bits and pieces of this horrible time in my people's history, and this opportunity will give me the chance to see where it all happened and further have a deeper connection to those effected in WWII. 

My trip will begin in London on May 21, 2018, ending 5 weeks later in Prague on June 25, 2018 when I will head back for the states. Other countries I will be visiting during this program include Paris, Italy, and Berlin, where I will spend one week in each country. This program will contribute 6 summer credit hours of the 9 that I have to complete in order to graduate. 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I would be sincerely and infinitely grateful for any amount of money I receive, because every little bit will help me to achieve my goal and participate in this significant and challenging program.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has taken the time to believe in me and help me achieve this dream!

With much respect and regard,
Cara Shemaria
