Fund Amy's Washington DC Symposium

I am raising the money to pay for the tuition cost of the Washington DC  Symposium on The New Frontiers in Peace Building, in July 2018. I was accepted and given the wonderful opportunity to learn from the greatest minds in conflict management and diplomatic relations from around the globe. However, as a full-time graduate student, I can’t afford to pay both the tuition and finance the lodging and round-trip flight. I am only asking for funding for the tuition which is $2,999, which has been discounted by $300 due to my early registration.  

I am currently a graduate student at Norwich University, pursuing my MA in Diplomacy with a concentration in Conflict Management. I am passionate about serving my nation and international community through service above self. Working in the diplomatic field is my passion and future career. I look forward to applying the knowledge I learn at the Washington DC  Symposium on The New Frontiers in Peace Building,
  to a career at a non-governmental conflict management organization, such as the International Peace and Security Institute (IPSI), which runs the symposium. 

I am humbled by the amazing opportunity I have been given and I hope you will support me in this endeavor. If you would like to know any more information about the symposium itself, my reasoning for attending or why “service above self” is my motivation in all pursuits, feel free to contact me.

Thank you (:
