I am about to begin my last year of college and have been invited this summer to go to New Zealand to attend the International Scholar Laureate Program. It is an opportunity I will probably never again get and am really looking forward to attending. It is a week long adventure and I will represent my school among many other academically successful students from all over the world. As part of the program, I will go on site at a New Zealand Engineering school and examine models for natural disaster planning and response. I will also get a chance to study the engineering behind the world's fastest boats in the America's Cup. This is an exciting opportunity but it is quite costly, and with a family and bills, I would not be able to afford it. Please help me raise enough money to expand my college resume and set me ahead to achieve my career goals. I would greatly appreciate it!
