The STARS campaign has now ended with almost 30% of the financial goal raised to provide funding to send 50 graduate students of Texas Tech University College of Education to the SERA conference in February 2020.
This was the first crowdfunding campaign of the College of Education and as such we learned a lot about how to perfect the process. With almost $5000 raised, STARS was a success! The College of Education can now offer a full ride to 15 graduate students who want to attend SERA.
The added benefit of the STARS fundraiser is we made many new friends of the College of Education. We heard from members of our alumnus and others in the community and received positive feedback.
We look forward to following up by broadcasting stories about SERA as well as other interesting programs with all our friends of the College of Education!
