      Hello! I am writing to ask for your support for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study biomedical research in Madrid, Spain! I will be representing the University of New Mexico’s Biology program, along with six other students, and am planning on embarking on this two-month journey at the end of May. I will be staying on campus at the University of Alcalá, and submerging myself into a completely new culture and language.

       The University of Alcalá is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Spain. To be selected into this intensive summer program in the city of Alcalá de Henares, Madrid is an incredible opportunity. This program is designed to offer an ideal combination of cultural immersion, internship experience, biology studies, and Spanish practice. As I am near to completing my Biology degree with a minor in chemistry, this internship will help open many doors into a potential career field or further academic program.

       This biomedical research internship is the beginning of a very exciting chapter in my life, but I can’t do it alone. The final hurdle I must overcome is covering the tuition, housing, meals, and airfare. Altogether, the trip will cost about $6,000. This is a big number for a full-time college student; however, the experience and knowledge I will gain will be worth so much more.         

       With your help, I can make this studying abroad trip possible. I would like to ask for you support in making this happen. I know that times may be financially tough, but I would truly appreciate any help. Most importantly, your thoughts and prayers as I prepare to travel would mean the world! Thank you for your consideration and generosity!

P.S.- Donations can also be sent to my mailing address. This will avoid the percentage and transaction fee deducted from every donation.
