Crystal's Summer Program Tuition
Organized by: Crystal Mieux
I'm Crystal Mieux and I'm a junior at Secondary School for Law in Brooklyn, NY. I'm trying to find a way to attend Skidmore College's Pre College Summer Program. I have tried my hardest to make sure that I take every opportunity that I am given, and take full advantage. I have the highest GPA in my school and set to be valedictorian next year. Skidmore is one college that I would like to attend and this program would help me determine if I made the right choice. In addition to getting the campus life experience, I would also have the opportunity to take some courses there. I feel this program would give me the chance to see if I'm college ready and is a way to challenge my knowledge. I was extremely excited to find out that I was accepted to the program. However, the financial aid I was given was sadly not enough. I am unfortunately short $1,700 and there is no way that I can put together that much money, due to the fact that my mother does not work. I've tried to go to my administrators and talked to the Dean of the program but there is only so much that they can do to ease my burden. If I don't give payment by June 15, I would have to give my spot away, which the mere thought breaks my heart and makes me cry. I only ask if there is someone that can help me with some type of donation or refer me to someone or somewhere that can help me. Thank you so much for listening to my story and hopefully there's a way you can help me.
