I have been academically very strong alongside extracurricular activities. I have scored 94% in class 10 and 95% and 96.6% in class 11 and 12 respectively.
My achievements include:
College Board India top performer - My SAT score is in the 98th percentile.
Academic Excellence Award - Top 3 Rankers
ICSE Board Toppers List - Cash Reward Rs.5000
Next Genius scholarship
NASA Cubes in Space Global design competition - I sent an experiment to space via NASA's Research Balloon in October this year.
My other achievements are in my resume....
My family is in serious medical debts due to treatment of paralysis of my grandfather and his death. My father is also at a job risk now.
During this period, I am going through College applications for foreign universities. I've been accepted to University College Dublin (2nd best in Ireland). I applied there because my counselor gave me a fee waiver.
I am applying to a few other universities that have good scholarships, but those require application fees of around 55 dollars per College. Also, I have to report my SAT and TOEFL scores which costs 31 dollars per College. As a result, I am in need of some financial help right now.
I don't want to miss this golden opportunity of studying abroad in prestigious colleges, and your help could make me reach my goals and get me accepted to some top colleges around the world. I feel I am capable of getting accepted.
I just need financial help in application fee. I would take care of my other expenses by part time jobs and scholarships.
My targeted universities are -
Cambridge University - 20 eur
University of Toronto (Pearson scholarship) - 250 usd
University of Waterloo - 125 usd
New York University Abu Dhabi - 55 usd
Trinity College Dublin - 55 eur
