Jen's Study Abroad Tuition
Organized by: Jenifer Lemaster
Hi, I'm Jenifer and I am a junior student at the University of Kentucky. Basic college team rivalries aside, I'm setting up this fundraiser to help raise money for my trip to Italy running from early May to late June this year, being run by my college. I was so excited when I got accepted into their study abroad program and I'm greatly looking forward to being able to go, but the costs are a bit of an issue for me. I am just a college student, attending classes full-time, so of course it's a bit difficult for me to fully cover the costs involved with the venture - like travel, food and accommodation, on top of the overall program fee set by the school. Unfortunately I didn't qualify for the scholarships offered by the university, which is why I'm asking for assistance. The total for the study abroad program itself is roughly $5000, which doesn't include the other things, but does take up the bulk of my costs for this summer. I've been scrambling to find a way to pay for all of this so that I can still go; it's an opportunity that I'd really hate to miss out on, both for the school credit and for the overall experience of living and learning overseas. I'd really appreciate the support if you're able to give any. The money collected for this will be paid to my school to cover my tuition; anything extra will help me pay for my other expenses while overseas like food and travel. So, thank you all in advance for taking the time to read this and help a student out.
