I am currently a student in Indonesia. As a student, here, I use a scholarship from my university so that I am free from tuition fee. The scholarship is given to an economically-unable, but excellent in academics skill. I am studying chemistry, and it goes very well. So I applied to one of the exchange program that my university arranged. Well, I got a scholarship for 6 months to study at Groningen, Netherlands, with 2 of my friends. It was nice to get a scholarship right? I don't think so.
Yes it looks like it's very nice to get scholarships. Since then, the problem arises. We (me and my 2 friends) realize that we don't have any money to buy a ticket to go to Netherlands (and of course back from Netherlands). That problem puts us in a confusing position. We really want to got there, study chemistry, and experience living outside of Indonesia to explore sciences. But we got no money (yes, no money) to buy even 1 ticket for 1 of us. We tried to work at the campus, I even tried teaching online, but all I got for 4 months is only 100$. Meanwhile I was searching for the tickets, and the cheapest we can buy is 600$. God, I know we're screwed.
Yes, I pray to God, no, I mean we pray to God, to give us some miracles, to give us strength to work everyday while we're studying too. I know that studying and working is hard, but I never imagined that it will be this hard to earn money. So, that's why I started this campaign. To all people out there, who, maybe a scientist, a professor, a teacher, or maybe even a student, I know that you all have been in my position. I know that you want to learn, but sometimes money is the problem. Please, help us.
We may not give the donators some things. So we're sorry for that, we just want to study well. The last from me, Chem-is-try. So this is our best try. I hope all the best for everyone who's reading this. Not only for donators, but everyone. Thank you, and God bless us.
