Hi, I am Mohammed Omerul Haq. Born and raised in the heritage city of Mysore, Karnataka. I am 22 years old and have received my acceptance from SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies), the University of London to study MA in History.
Funds were being arranged for my education; however, due to unforseen medical expenses of Covid, which ended up taking my Mom away this June, we had to use the fund and other monetary sources for hospital and other expenditures. Due to the same reason, we were unable to process the necessary paperwork for a loan. I currently live with my retired father, and it is getting increasingly difficult to process the loan for the financing of education and I have also been unable to apply to any governmental scholarships. I have already lost two years due to the pandemic. I am on this platform to raise funds for the cost of my higher education, and I sincerely request your help.
I am a BA Graduate from the University of Mysore with a concentration in History, Political Science and Literature. I received many acceptance letters from Universities in the UK, including the University of Edinburgh; due to Covid-19, I could not travel abroad for my studies. After a long wait, with re-applying to SOAS, University of London, I finally have the chance to fulfil my dreams. For the past year, I have been running a podcast and a website called India Colonised. I am happy to have brought together like-minded enthusiasts who are my consistent listeners.
Motivation and Purpose:

Your generous contribution would mean a great deal to me and my family and help me pursue my dream, unhindered by the dearth of monetary support. Id’ be ever grateful for any contribution you’d be able to make towards my higher education. I plan to fund living expenses partially through part-time jobs subject to the uncertainties due to the pandemic. Owing to the high amount of tuition fees, travel, accommodation and other expenses, I need your help to achieve my dream of completing my higher education at a world-renowned university.
