It's all about marine mammals for me - all day everyday! I used to watch Discovery Channel instead of cartoons, I read peer-reviewed articles in my spare time and I have achieved my Bachelor's of Science degree in Marine biology. However, I am not finished. There is still so much left for me to educate myself on, which is why I have decided to go graduate school.
I have recently been accepted to the University of Miami at their Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences campus. I will be attending their Master's of Professional Science program where I will major in Marine Mammals and work on dolphin research focusing on mother and calf vocalizations!
I am very much geeking out and excited! I am forming this fundraising campaign as this accelerated Master's program is completely self-funded at $60,000, not including moving or housing expenses, which already add up for I will be moving from San Antonio to Miami.
I am doing as much as I can on my end - applying for scholarships and saving. However, I have quite a gap to fill and I find myself needing help. If I could do this on my own, I would, but the more research I do, the more I find that Graduate school has very limited funding opportunities, especially for my degree major. Any assistance by you will be sincerely appreciated! I promise every penny will be used wisely to help pay off this tuition.
Thank you so much for helping this dream unfold!
