VERY CLOSE TO MY GOAL! - March 15, 2017
As of today, I am $625 shy of paying for the International Scholar Laureate Program in Nursing and Health that will take place in South Africa in May, $3000 of which was paid by a scholarship for the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. I am still in need of funds towards the flights there and back.
My donations have been mostly private through PayPal, but I have had a few generous donors through GoFundMe, as well. The cut-off time to pay for tuition is April 3rd, and the sooner I secure my flights, the better, as the prices are currently all over the map and could get more expensive closer to departure day, which will be May 14th.
Here is the GoFundMe link to donate and the PayPal one can be found here:
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars - February 20, 2017
Very proud to have accepted this invitation today. It is somehow bittersweet, though, as my brother passed away a little over a week ago, and I am just coming off of a week of mourning. I am grateful to my family and friends for helping me make it through the week, as I also had to attend classes. It was one of the roughest weeks of my life.
International Scholar Laureate Program - February 7, 2017
I have just been awarded a scholarship from Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, to attend the International Scholar Laureate Program for Nursing and Healthcare in Johannesburg, South Africa, this coming May. I chose South Africa over Australia, because I am very interested in visiting a Zulu community and learning about the rituals of Sangomas, who are the traditional healers of the community.
This $3000 Scholarship covers most of the tuition, but does not cover the flights or the cultural extension, which I would very much like to participate in. You can see a breakdown of the tuition costs by visiting the International Scholar Laureate website, and following the links provided there. A breakdown of the costs of the program and exactly what the scholarship covered, is in the email that I received from them; you can read it by clicking here.
For this reason, I have started a GoFundMe campaign. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, and I am very honored to have received it.
