Summer Travel - help w/ funding
- 0Feb 10, '13 by melissacareyHello all,
I am interested in traveling this summer but I don't have the the resource to fund a trip. Any ideas?
I want to get creative. Are there scholarships or programs out there that would fund an undergraduate nursing student (flight and housing). I am willing to volunteer, help out with research, work with children.
Any ideas would help! Thanks!

All volunteer opportunities I have been involved in entailed me at least paying my way there.....with donations being down and budget cuts. I'm not so sure what you will find available.
I wish you luck!

You might also consider closer to home options: you local shelter, women's shelter, abuse hotline, soup kitchen, etc...
