Hi, I am Leonid Morozov. I'm a graduating senior with a perfect GPA attending SUNY Purchase Conservatory of music. It’s been a long journey, and I wanted to ask for your help one more time. This is my last semester at Purchase College, but with COVID-19 my family's already poor financial situation has gotten much worse, putting our ability to afford my last semester of tuition at risk.
I’ve worked very hard to get to where I am now, and I've tried everything that was in my power. I earned many scholarships: was named a James Moody Scholar, became a John Abercrombie Grant recipient, and was lucky to receive emergency financial grants from Purchase College. I work as a Resident Assistant on campus, which provides me with free housing. All of the above greatly contributes to paying my tuition, but it still is not enough to cover my last semester. Due to COVID-19 we, musicians, lost most of our gigs; I also lost my second job at the Performing Arts Center on campus and wasn’t able to secure another one due to lack of available jobs that match my visa status. 2020 was a hard year for everyone, I know. If you find it financially possible, please, consider helping me so I can put a dot on my amazing journey through Jazz at Purchase College. Every dollar counts, and I will be forever grateful for your generosity and kindness. Please Donate & Share, and stay safe!
