I am a very dedicated student, and I love taking courses at my university. I also work to cover tuition, housing, and personal expenses, but I would like the chance to get an internship (usually low-paying, or not paid) and focus more on my studies. My degree plan is in Natural Sciences with a concentration in Biology. I want to intern at a local wildlife reservation, but it is a non-paying position. I know the experience would be great for my education, and it would give me the skills to be a great conservationist someday.
In order to take a non-paid position, I need enough money to cover at least my housing expenses and tuition. I could still work a part-time job for personal expenses and school fees. My housing and tuition costs are as follows:
- Rent: $500/month
- Electricity: $80/month (on average)
- Internet: $30/month (needed for homework)
- Tuition is about $10,456 per year.
The total housing cost per month is about $610, and the cost per year is about $7320.
My total goal is $17,776 to cover tuition and housing expenses for one year.
I appreciate anything that anyone can offer to help.
I am in a five year program, and I still have about two to three years left before completing my bachelor’s degree. I plan to continue taking my courses and take on an internship. If I reach my donation goal, I can continue to take courses and learn in the field with my future peers.
More about me:
I am sincere in my desire to learn and help conservation efforts. Lack of money is the only reason why I can’t take on an internship. I am a 30 year old female, with work experience in a different field. I still work full-time. I live in a modest apartment on my own. My passion at the moment is becoming well-educated in the Natural Sciences and contributing to the field in the future. My fellow students are amazing and friendly, and we work great together as a team. I often do not get to participate in their side-research and projects because I am too busy with work.
Please consider donating to help me do well in school. I don’t want to have to drop out because I don’t have enough money. I am currently asking for a total of $17,776 to cover the cost of tuition and housing expenses for one year. I truly appreciate anything you can do to help.
