I need to raise funds to study Psychology at SACAP (South African College of Applied Psychology) for 2017. The stipulated required amount covers tuition costs, study materials and accommodation for a full year. I do not have the means to pay my own way, nor does my family. I am a 22 year old coloured female wishing to pursue a career in psychology. My gravitation toward the study and desire to understand and learn bout the human psyche, is really strong and I would like to acquire more knowledge and skill in this department to help me advance my life. After high school I worked for a few companies. The environment wasn't pleasant nor was working shifts or the long hours only to get minimum wage. I have seen middle aged people working, doing the same thing I was doing, for the same company and they'd been there for years yet is still sitting in the same chair, doing the same thing for the same salary. I got very depressed as my life did not seem to be progressing, instead it started spiraling. I have the capacity to do more, to do better, to expend my time, energy and competency wiser.
The course is 4 years in total. I require funds for the first year only. Thereafter I will work hard and apply for bursary or scholarship.
