Help Nell finish her Ph.D.

$2,385 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 2 months
Dear friends, I need help. Asking for assistance is not my way, but now, I feel desperate. I am two semesters away from completing my degree, but right now, I cannot even register. Last Fall (2018), I expected to be awarded financial aid to cover tuition, books, and living expenses. I took out an emergency loan in anticipation of that forthcoming aid.

However, I found out afterthe fall term ended, that no money was coming to cover that loan, or fund the Spring 2019 semester. In fact, my quota of federal aid had been met and no money was coming to cover the loan for fall tuition already spent. Since I was unable to register for the Spring 2019 semester, my teaching assistantship was revoked.

For the past several months, I have been trying to find a new goal for my life, feeling like the financial fiasco was a sign that I did not need or deserve a doctorate. However, I still wish to work with visually impaired and blind college mathematics students, and to do that, I need that degree.

In order even to register for classes, I’ve got to have $5500 to pay for the loan. I expect to be teaching in high school beginning in Fall 2019, so I am not sure how to pay the $945 per semester that I will need to pay for one hour of college. Also, I have been looking without success for work to fill in until the fall term and the high school teaching job. It would be lovely to have help with living expenses.

Thank you in advance for doing whatever you can, sharing or donating.

Thanks to everyone who has donated or shared thus far, there is enough money to pay back half of the loan to Texas State University!

If each of you could just donate $10 or $20, and share and ask for at least $5 or $10, there will be enough to pay off the loan to Texas State, which is preventing me from taking classes. I only need about $2500 more!

Thank you all more than I can say! I love y’all! Nell ❤️

Special note to students: If you could donate between $1 and $5, and Share this, and ask for donations of $1 to $5, that will make a HUGE difference to me! Thank you all! I love you guys!

Hi all! With your help, I am over a fifth of the way to the goal, and I can almost pay off half of the loan, which is preventing me from continuing in school! I'm really psyched and have been reading and editing my dissertation over the past weeks. That's my summer project -- to get the dissertation in its best possible form before the Fall (and work) hits. If anyone is poor but would still like to help, I could really use readers to help me know that the dissertation is making sense, and that it is clear and understandable to any intelligent person. Thank you again for all you have done! I love you all! ❤️

Hi all my former students and friends, as you can see, we are over one tenth of the way to the final goal, and almost one fifth of the way to paying off the bill to the school, so that I can finally enroll and finish this degree! Please see your way clear to sharing this appeal and heed the words of one of my dearest students: "Even if everyone just donates a few dollars, it can all add up to a good amount." Please consider donating ❤️
