I am an educator who is pursuing a doctoral degree in educational leadership at San Diego State University. I need to raise $6436.00 to pay my tuition for the summer 2023 session. I have exhausted my financial aid eligibility for the current school year and I’m enrolled in a cohort that requires me to take courses in a sequential order to remain on track to earn my EdD in two years. Earning this degree would make me the first person in my family to do so and help fulfill a promise I made to my father, who passed away last summer, that I would become the first doctor in our family.
I am married with two daughters and my eldest recently earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. I’m working to prove to my family that their 54 year old father is capable of working a full time job and attend graduate school to earn my doctorate degree. I would be most appreciative for any contributions made towards paying my summer tuition fees, which must be paid by May 31, 2023. Thank you for your support!
