Thank you to all of our GSU Turkey 2015 donors! We just surpassed our 50% mark for our crowdfunding project and now have over $4,000 to help offset the cost of the study abroad practicum. Right now we have enough funds to offset each student’s cost by about $285, but we want to reach our $7,000 goal and help offset the trip cost as much as possible. Please continue to talk about our project with your friends and family and share our video on social media. Thank you for your support of GSU Turkey 2015!  Please watch this video message from two more of our participants.
