Start your fundraising project to attend AIMS in Graz immediately!
Accumulating the money to make the trip to Europe may seem daunting at first, but hundreds have done it and you can, too! Here are a number of strategies, including ideas for personal fundraising, AIMS scholarships for certain competition winners, AIMS merit scholarships and work-study grants. Although limited, these funds can augment your fundraising efforts.
The most common way participants raise money is by seeking tax-deductible donations from friends, family and other supporters. As a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization, AIMS can accept donations (tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law) up to the cost of AIMS in Graz, airfare, extra living expenses, and a limited amount for career development. Donations to your account in excess of AIMS expenses are disbursed in Graz.
Apply to many sources. Don’t “put all your eggs in one basket”. Think of yourself as a marvelous tax-deduction and go raise that money! Many participants have raised enough money to attend AIMS in Graz in 25-, 50- and 100-dollar donations. You CAN afford AIMS in Graz!
