College Student with Cancelled Summer Job Needs Rent Help

My Story:

I am an international graduate student who is experiencing a temporary loss of income due to campus closures related to Covid-19. I'm only allowed to work on campus and thus can't work at the moment.

My student stipend helps me meet my basic expenses, but I tend to live paycheck to paycheck as well because I can only work part-time. I depend completely on myself for everything: sustenance and shelter. Due to this loss of income, I am unable to afford my summer rent which is now overdue. I have no other choice, but to reach out and ask for help through this grant.

I want, more than anything, to be able to graduate and achieve my dreams by returning to my studies in the fall. This funding will allow me to continue my studies by ensuring that I have a place to live while I complete my degree. If I complete my education I will be able to give back to my community in a meaningful way. I hope to go forward into the world a bright and educated woman who returns the generosity afforded to her by ten-fold. Thank you for considering my application for your donation.
