My name is Tabish Ali Rather.
I have an admission offer from Swinburne university of technology Australia with partial scholarship for "Bachelors in Mathematics".
I've had to turn down offers from 3 different universities due to lack of funds.
Unfortunately, despite partial funding I can't afford to pay for my education. I am here today to ask for you help.
Who am I?
I am a mathematics enthusiast hailing from a small town of Jammu and Kashmir called Summerbugh.
I did my schooling up to 10th class from ISMI Pampore and completed 12th class from Candid Higher Secondary Nowgam.
Why I deserve a place in Swinburne?
During the political lockdown of 2019 in Jammu and Kashmir, I was in 11th standard; Despite the closure of schools and communication blockade, I somehow managed to study on my own, by refusing to give up and simply let everything go south and as proof for my hard work, I did get 90%+ in 11th class annual exams.
The following year, 2020, I had to face Covid lockdown, with just 2g internet in hand, I somehow managed to study in this year as well and got 95%+ in 12th annual exams with perfect score in Mathematics..
All of this was on top of what I had to face in 2008,2010 and 2016, which had left a dent in my foundational education, improving my foundation costed me countless months. Despite the struggle, frustration and breakdowns, I worked diligently and applied myself sincerely to my studies.
Today, I have a great opportunity in the form of this offer and the only obstacle is the required funding. This obstacle can be removed with your donations. Even a donation of 100rs will mean a lot. Will you help me propel myself towards my goal?
How much do I need?
Total tuition fee for three years:26400 AUD which is 14,70,453.37 INR
Total living expenses for three years:46800 AUD which is 26,07,581.62
My family, at best can pay around 5 lakh INR
So I need around 30 lakh INR via donations.
I'll work part-time while studying in Australia to manage the remaining amount. For the rest of it, Please HELP!
Why not take a loan?
My father, a government employee is the sole earner in my family. My father's salary is enough to support our living and basic schooling; It is nowhere close to the funds I need to study abroad.
Although, taking a loan looks like a viable option but in my case it isn't because after completing my bachelors degree , I'll have work in first world countries to repay a loan of 30lakh INR, which won't allow me to go for masters and earn a Ph.D. which defeats the whole purpose for which I want to study mathematics: which is so that I can come to my homeland and serve the society. As you might be aware, that mathematics is dreaded and hence neither taught nor learnt well which consequently affects our ability to understand science and therefore hinders our progress in STEM which is not affordable in 21st century.
Therefore, I would like to request you to contribute to my cause and help me get to Swinburne. A donation of 100rs will be highly appreciated, also sharing this fundraiser will be great help.
I have to accept the admission offer before 18-July-2021 and pay around 5lakh INR which includes first year fees and health insurance.
I hope you'll get me closer to my dream.
