Hello everyone, my name is Fabian, I'm doing the bachelor thesis and I was awarded with a scholarship to do a research stay in Madrid for which I competed in May. The characteristics of the scholarship granted by the Public Education Secretariat in Mexico is 65,000 Mexican pesos, to cover the costs of a stay of 2 months (flight, accommodation, transport and food expenses), and as you can notice, the scholarship amount is limitated.
However, that's no the worst thing, given the bureaucratic situations that exist in Mexico, we were informed that the amount of the scholarship will be deposited between June 15 and 20th, so if I want to go to the stay, I must cover plane, lodging and meals by my own, until the scholarship arrives, but if I do not respect the established dates of the stay (which runs from June 11 to August 10 for me), I will have to return the full amount of the scholarship and unfortunately, I will not be able to go beyond due my given my current economic situation.
I have quoted MEX-MAD flights and the most economical I have found is in almost 1000 dollars making connection in the US; without going through the US (due I do not have an US visa) the costs increase by ~50%. I have dates over me, and I have to take a plane before June 11th and I find it very complicated now to be able to pay all those expenses, my friends have supported me and loaned what they could but is not enough.
That is why I am asking for your help, because I really want to be able to live this experience that will be very useful in my formation as a future surveyor engineer. I'm really excited of the opportunity.
Any donation you can make to me will be very helpful, you can help with any amount you want.
I really appreciate help and time taken.
Thanks to all !
