Hello everyone!

I'm a graduate student in Cognitive Neuroscience with a strong interest in computational methods.

I have been admitted to a 1-year master program in High Performance Computing at ICTP/SISSA (Trieste, Italy). It's a program that tickled my interests for two years now, but I could apply for it only recently. I didn't have much hope of getting in (given my limited background in Maths and Computer Science), but to my surprise I was selected to be part of this amazing program. 

Now comes the hard hit: the fees. The total fees amount to 7'000 Euros in three installments. To many, it might not seem that much, but for me it's quite the expense (I come from a working-class family, I worked myself several part-time jobs but I could just cover my living expenses)! I am considering getting a loan to pay for the fees and the living expenses; it's a risk, but I want to do it that much. 

The help I am seeking is not to pay the total amount of fees+living expenses; just to be able to amortise part of the loan would quite the result! 

This I am asking you all. It's not an innovative project or a sensational idea; just some help.

I hope you will consider helping realise this dream of mine, even the minimum would be infinitely appreciated :)

I wish you all a wonderful continuation!

Matteo
