Covering College Costs

Covering College Costs

From Courtney Wallace

I have been accepted onto a college degree in the USA, and I am almost able to afford the course. After a student loan and a scholarship I am just $16'000 away from affording it.

It has been my dream for many years to study in the US, and now I am so close to be able to do it. It's so disheartening that money is the only thing that divides people from their dreams a lot of the time.

I have successfully got a scholarship, but it doesn't quite help enough. The student loan I have been able to get has a lifetime limit of $50k, and so I can't get any more than that. It's a shame as it's only a little bit more (well, $16k isn't a "little" amount but in the grand scheme of college tuition it's better).

As I am a UK citizen my options for funding are very limited, and I have done a lot of research around what I can do. But I seem to have hit a wall with it. Asking others for money isn't my style, but I think it'd break my heart if everything fell through when I'm so close. I've accepted the offer, and due to fly out in December.

There's a lot I didn't realise prior to applying, otherwise I may have waited. I would be truly thankful for any donations. It'd really help me. I hope I can make it!
