I believe I can reach the stars & touch the sky,
I believe I can hear my potential's cry
I believe it takes courage to fulfill your dream,
I believe it takes guts to just believe!

I am a resident of New Delhi, India and have been admitted to ESCP Europe (Madrid Campus) for my Master’s beginning from the 14th September 2016. I aim to leave India by 10th September.
However, due to huge financial constraints, I am finding it very difficult to fund my degree. I cannot imagine staying back after more than a year of hard work and sleepless nights only due to lack of funds.
Henry David Thoreau once said - "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

My castle is built in the field of Strategic Management and Consulting. My castle is being a in a global consulting firm, sharpening my strategic and business development skills to achieve my long term goal of being a successful social entrepreneur and work at the United Nations. To lay a strong foundation for my castle, the first stepping stone could not be more logical - the MSc in Business Project Management (Strategic Management and Consulting track) at ESCP Madrid.
Unfortunately, no opportunity comes for free. You have to pay not only with hard work, dedication and tireless preparation - but also with the finances needed to gain top-quality education at the best business school of Europe. 1 Euro is almost 75 times the Indian National Rupee, and there is not a single point in the application process when I am not reminded of this unavoidable bottleneck. The application fee alone cost me almost one-third of my monthly salary. The tuition fee of the program is around 3.5 times my annual salary; with accommodation and living expenses it will be a little less than 6 times my annual salary.
This amount will help me finance a partial amount (1/5th) of my tuition fee. In case the target is exceeded, I aim to use it for the next semester's installment.
I am highly motivated to pursue this course and do not want to miss this opportunity only due to lack of funding. I look forward to your support as an International student who aspires to study in Madrid.
