PhD Support

Hello All,
You may or may not know I am in the process of pursuing my Doctorate in Human Factors & Ergonomics. To this point, I’ve worked 6 different assistantships, 3 part-time jobs, 2 internships and run a photography business on the side to offset my education and living expenses while pursuing my doctorate. I have taken the maximum number of credits every semester of my graduate career to complete my master's degree in 2 years instead of 3 and fall 2017  is my last semester of coursework for my Ph.D. In Spring 2018, I am preparing for my dissertation proposal and finish my last class for my minor. Working while in school has taken a serious toll on me. Working while in school takes time away from much-needed self-care (rest, sleep, and my passions like photography). My dissertation will be the hardest part of my Ph.D. so far. If you can contribute anything to help offset my school costs and living expenses so that I can do the necessary things for my mental and physical health to complete this in a timely manner and without losing myself in the work, please do so. Anything helps, and if not financial, emotional support is always helpful!
