Need Initial Financial Assistance For PhD in Australia

Ask for an update


Dear Friends, I am Saraswati Suna (Swati) from Pourkela (Karlamunda Block), Kalahandi district of Odisha, educationally most backward region in India. I am the first generation female learner of the family and from the community (Dalit) in my village. I have completed MA in Sociology (Gold Medallist) at Babasaheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar University, Lucknow. I have also completed MPhil at Centre for Women Studies at Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. My MPhil is on “Discrimination in Higher Education: A Study of Dalit Women at Sambalpur University in Odisha.” I have found that Dalit women face triple discrimination in a patriarchal society when they fight against caste, class, and gender, their voices are suppressed.
Now, I have been selected for the National Overseas Scholarship of Government of India to continue Ph.D. The Department of Education at the University of Sydney, Australia has offered me an admission letter. The joining date for the Ph.D. program is in July 2019, the Government of India will release the fund only after joining of one month in the University. I need to manage the finance on my own, which is very difficult for me. Therefore, I need financial support for one month. I have no other earning source to manage my initial requirement. I need your generous support for my initial necessary things for going Abroad for Ph.D.
The following is a breakdown of my financial situation for the starting one month:
Accommodation Rs 70,000
Food Rs 60, 000
Other Stationary Rs20, 000
Visa fee Rs 30,000
As you can see, I need Rs 180 000 for a month. I humbly request you to contribute, I will be grateful to you forever, appreciated. Thank you very much for being so supportive of my goals. I would appreciate your generosity. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email.
