Funding Goal: $10,000
My name is Jose Gonzalez and I am a current senior in high school. In Fall 2018, I will become a first-generation college student pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in General Engineering at Clemson University. Due to financial issues, my chances of student debt are increasing, since as a DACA, it makes the chances of me finding scholarships difficult. Although it is a stretch, I feel that this university will offer me significant possibilities and opportunities for the future. As soon as I graduate from high school, I will work at my dad’s construction job during the summer to afford at least food at the university. As a first-generation college student, I would be very appreciative of any money received for my college expenses at Clemson University.
