    from New Delhi, Delhi


My name is Gaurav, and I am from Uttar Pradesh India,  I'm a Graduate student at the University of Florida. I got an opportunity to study at various universities in the US including NYU Including the University of Florida[Ranked 5th in Public University] in computer science. Such an admission offer should and did bring me and my family immense happiness and hope but unfortunately, with my current financial conditions, it has been hard for me to finance my college. I am in a constant search for various other scholarships and aids but I haven’t been able to secure any thus far. Major Sources of my fund came from an Education Loan and My savings from my work. The time is ticking fast and I can’t wait to see the opportunity slip away. Therefore, I have started this campaign to seek your kind help and generous support so that I can join the Master’s program on time.

I am a first-generation graduate in my family, Since I have the opportunity to study there, I want to achieve something big through it. At this moment I am in need of emergency funds to complete my final semester here, otherwise, I will have to leave my dream in a stalemate situation. Please help me to complete my education. I am determined to not let the financial constraints deter me from reaching my goals.

After graduating from college, I worked 5 years to save for my further education and family support. I took part in TCS's(TATA Consultancy Service) Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) to teach slum and impoverished kids and adults and spread social awareness. I also taught CS and professional ethics lectures in rural schools and colleges under the CSR scheme. I have a keen interest to help people in need.
My cost for each semester is around $18000. for 4 semesters the total cost will be around $72000 or 58 Lacs. I'm looking for only 15% of the total Fee. Most of the funds that I had was from Education loans and some of our savings. I am also working part-time to overcome my needs. I'm hereby requesting you of all people to help me in this quest. Each and every rupee donated to this platform will go directly towards my education.

I apprehend that this amount is very high and it is crazy and ambitious to think about increasing it, but I would like to believe that it is not impossible with your help and support. For someone like me, even applying for a place like the UF Graduate School was crazy and ambitious. I am overwhelmed by the joy of receiving offers and rely on your blessings to make this crazy dream come true.

I would be highly obliged for all of your help in this donation.

Here's how you can help:

1. Please donate if you are able to. No matter what the amount - your contribution would mean the world to me!

2. Please share this with your networks if you can - the more people this reaches, the higher the chances of me reaching my fundraising goal and pursuing my education.
