An Academic Appeal

Friend, It is with great pleasure that I announce that I have been accepted into the LL.M. in European Law program at Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) in Paris, France. This is an unbelievable opportunity for me, and it is life-changing. I talk about it more in-depth in my new post on The RJM Blog.

But I have a problem. At present, I lack the financial means to undertake this move. Financial Aid won’t cover my move, and scholarships are lacking. I’m doing what I can on my end, but things aren’t looking good. I'm not sure where else to turn.

But I was raised never to give up. This is where, I hope, you come in. Here is a reasonable cost estimate* for a two-year period in which I will pursue this degree and complete a required internship/apprenticeship.

- $13,929.30 (Tuition + Administrative Fees)
- $44,081.52 (Housing + Utilities x 24)
- $23,215.52 (Food + Living/Emergency Expenses x 24)
- $2,089.44 (Public Transit + Travel Expenses x 24)

Estimated Total: $83,315.78

This is the time when we come together around those in need. Would you invest in life of a hungry law student and aspiring public servant seeking the means by which he can earn the skills to change the world? Will you lend a helping hand?

I'll make it plain. Your support will change my life forever, your support will allow me the means by which I can change the lives of others, and you're one click away from making that a reality.
