I am a non-traditional graduate student in my second semester with two regular semesters to complete for my degree in applied anthropology. I recently was told I need to take a field study course and complete a graduate project over the summer (2014). I have secured funding for my regular semesters but I do not have the funds to cover the summer courses and my living expenses. I work part-time while going to school and make enough money to pay for my food and rent. One of the summer courses is a field study course that will take me out of my area. The second course is a graduate project. I am my sole supporter and I do not have any resources to help me complete these mandatory course and pay my living expenses. I will continue to work as many hours as I am able but it will not be sufficient to cover the costs. I will repay any donors once I secure employment after I have received my degree.
