Zoe has been offered a prestigious (Robert Schuman) graduate scholarship at the European Parliament.
Due to recent social security cuts means that Zoe will lose her housing and disabiliy benefits there is a financial shortfall to cover the rent on her flat in Dundee for duration of the 5 months traineeship.
Although Zoe has successfully secured a monthly scholarship she needs to raise a minimum of £1000 to get to Brussels and cover a deposit and 1st months rent near to the European Parliament building.
Ideally, Raising £1500 would secure Rent in Dundee for the full five months housing benefit will be lost.
The scholarship starts on 1st October 2016 until 28th February 2017 so there's not much time as flights need to be booked and suitable accomodation needs to be found.
