I strongly believe and know within myself that I can make my goal of $10,000 because my mother taught me that I should never give up.

My name is Jennifer Aleman and I go to school at SUNY Purchase college and I'm studying sociology and anthropology. I want to study abroad this summer in Barcelona Spain.This is an opportunity of a life time and I know that if I don't go and study abroad this summer in Barcelona Spain then I will never be able to have this chance again. Because of the program that I am trying to get into I will not be able to get any federal funding or financial aid from the state. This program is not through the SUNY system and therefore I will not be able to get any tap or pell or any type of financial aid at all! This leaves me with a HUGE amount of money to come up with...the program that I will be going through has amazing package deals that offers a lot. I have done a lot of research on the types of programs that go to Spain and this is the only program that has everything that I want and need in a Study Abroad program. Although I cannot receive any funding for my trip I can apply for scholarships. They offer anywhere from $250-$1000 so that might be able to cover for my air fair..but that's still in the works. I still need to apply for them in the spring semester, my goal for my trip is $10,000 because I need money for the program, air fair, food money, travel money, emergency money and spending money.They have an amazing cultural program that is taught in English and this will be an opportunity that I will never get again.So here I am starting my adventure towards the most amazing summer of my life. I will also be in Spain for my 21st birthday so this really will be the most amazing birthday of my life.
