Crowd funding is a great way to raise money for your study abroad experience. Set a funding goal, reach out to friends and family, thank them in your own special way, and get one step closer to financing your program abroad. There are many crowd funding sites to choose from, so read the details carefully, and find the best fit for your funding needs.
"In regards to studying abroad, my greatest obstacle and discouragement was affordability. For years, my 'I can't afford it' attitude deterred me from pursuing my long-felt aspiration to travel and learn abroad. However, with the rise of new financial avenues such as crowdfunding, I explored and exhausted every source of funding at my disposal. With the help of scholarships and generous donations to my crowdfunding page, I successfully raised over $4,500 which covered a substantial amount of travel and boarding. My study abroad experience was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have made in college, in part thanks to taking advantage of free and accessible platforms such as crowdfunding."
