Study Abroad Canada Trip

Category: Fun | Posted: Sat Jan 23, 2010 5:00 am

I was told in my Plant Morphology class that there will be a study abroad trip to Churchhill, Manitoba, Canada. That particular area is where three different ecosystems come together. I was instantly intrigued and wanted to sign up, but then I discovered it has a $3,200 price tag on it excluding tuition. I really want to go so I e-mailed my professor about scholarships that might be available. She e-mailed me back saying that just for signing up that I would get a minimum of a $750 scholarship. I instantly signed up and am around $2,000 now. I just need to find a way to get some more money, whether it be by selling my other cars, or by applying for some competitive scholarships that I may or may not get, but I'm willing to try anything because I've always wanted to visit and study Canada. The trip includes room and board, polar bear protection/insurance, food, air fair, train fair, and a whale watching tour of which she guaranteed us to see at least a Beluga Whale. I'm really excited and hope I will be able to go. I'm not a fan of the cold, but I will put up with it for this chance. I'm also told that I might be able to see the northern lights up there, which is something else that I've always wanted to see. So fingers crossed that I will be able to go. :)

Oh I really hope you can raise the money to go on this trip. What an experience it will be when you get there to study. I hope you'll take lots of photographs for us and let us see some of what Canada has to offer. Good luck and keep us informed won't you?
