Hello everyone! I am currently a first year nursing student and am very interested in doing a short medical mission through International Medical Relief nest summer when I am on break. I would be going as a 2nd year nursing student. Being a poor nursing student, I am mostly concerned about funding the trip, as it is going to cost around $3,500. My goal is to raise as much as possible and try to have the trip covered entirely by donations.
Does anyone have any suggestions or personal experiences to share? IMR gives you information for your fundraising letter, which I plan on sending to all family and friends. I also thought of setting up a GoFundMe account and also posting something at the hospital I work at.
Are there any specific scholarships for nursing students in relation to medical missions or volunteering in particular?
Thanks for any and all insight!
