I am Shreya Gupta, studying Civil engineering at National Institute of Technology, Karnataka Surathkal India. I've been accepted to intern as a researcher in University of Sydney, Australia, School of Civil engineering for 10 weeks under the guidance of Prof Dr. Benjy Marks. This 10 week internship is a great opportunity to learn more about segregation of granular particles which can be used to predict and prevent the hazardous effects of landslide, land subsidence and debris flow. This internship will be a solid research experience that'll support my higher education applications (PhD) in the same field that I'll be applying later this Fall 2019.
Belonging to the lower middle class family I won't be able to support my expenses incurring during my stay there in Australia completely. As I won't be recieving any financial support, I have to take care of a visa application fees AUD300, accommodation of around AUD3000, campus health fees insurance of AUD1500, daily expenses of about AUD1500, and travelling expenses of around AUD1200 which will add up-to a sum of AUD7500. I'll be supporting one-half of my expenses from the saving I've done with my scholarships till date. I'll still be in need of around AUD3800 to support my stay in Australia for 10 weeks.
It's my humble request to everyone reading my post to support me with whatever you can, no matter how big or small your contribution is it'll matter a lot to me and will help me to take a step closer to my long term goal of doing a PhD in research and science by getting me this dream opportunity of working in my field of interest. I'll be grateful for your support.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind support.
