Hey, my name is Sherlock Jr Langevine. I am 19 years old and I live in Victoria on the East Coast of Demerara, Guyana. I have recently been accepted to Stanford University on a USD $324,000 scholarship but I just need USD $8,400 more to attend for the next 4 years. It's my dream school but unfortunately, my mother and father can't afford to come up with the remainder that I need.
I come from a single parent household with 3 children and I'm a first generation college student. My mother works a full-time job in order to support my siblings and I, which limits our ability to pay for college, even after financial aid & scholarships. We don't expect this to fully cover the cost of attendance, but any contributions would be greatly appreciated!
I have consistently been a top achiever, having placed 17th in Guyana for the 2018 CSEC examinations with 14-grade ones, and just recently I narrowly missed Guyana's presidential scholarship after placing 4th Nationally at CAPE with 11-grade ones and 7-grade twos.
If I make enough money to go I plan to study Chemical Engineering and Computer Science so I can play a pivotal role in developing the Caribbean. I would really appreciate donations of any size. The small stuff always adds up.
The money covers part of my accomodations, and indirect costs such as books and supplies as estimated by Stanford University. Any donations would be withdrawn by my Aunt, Sharon Roberts in the US and will be given to me to pay Stanford. Again, thank you so much for your assistance!
