I was recently accepted to study for a Bachelor's degree at the Florida State University College of Nursing in Tallahassee, FL. I want to follow my dream of becoming a nurse but after accounting for all of my savings, need based financial aid, and partial scholarships which I feel blessed to have received I am still going to be about $16,475.00 short of covering my total expenses for the program. I have a deadline of August 10th, 2013 to show that I can in fact afford the program.
I really need the help and this is my last resort. If there are any groups, individuals, or organizations that are willing to sponsor a student such as myself please contact me. Donations can be processed through this site and I would be SO VERY GRATEFUL for ANY help that I am offered.
A little background about me. I come from a family rich in love but of very modest financial means. My parents were never able to afford a college education. I am the first in my family to obtain a college degree. Since high school all of education has been funded through need based financial aid and scholarships. It has been really difficult trying to get into a good nursing program and now that I have I can only hope to be able to fund my edeavors.
