What did you use to fundraise?
University Funding

Amount raised:
Raised cost of flights

Placement:
Sri Lanka, August 2017

How did you find your fundraising experience? 
I applied to my university's funding scheme. This required an application form which was followed by an interview lasting approximately 10 minutes. From this I raised enough to cover my flights entirely so it was really worthwhile.

What are your top tips?
• If you don't ask you don't get!
• Email a careers adviser or head of year and see what help there is.
• Emailing SLV.Global really helped with a lot of the questions and some of the information I was able to copy word for word.
• Some funding applications have deadlines so it's best to start early so you don't miss out.
