What our scholarship recipients are saying

I am eternally grateful for your generosity to me and helping me to make my dreams come true.

My name is J. S. I wanted to send a letter to express how grateful I am to be awarded the North Star Turkish Scholarship. Being awarded this scholarship will help me to be able to pay for my dental hygiene education at Dallas College. Having this scholarship will help to ease the burden of paying for tuition and supplies. I am eternally grateful for your generosity to me and helping me to make my dreams come true. Being able to finish my degree will help change my life and will allow me to use my license to help my community. Again, I thank you for choosing me for this award.

I want to motivate girls from my country to get into the technical field and pursue their dreams and goals

Thank you donor for the North Star Turkish Scholarship. I am beyond grateful to be the recipient of this scholarship. I come from a small developing country Nepal where most women are still deprived of education and career prospects. Being the first generation to study abroad has been a challenge but also something that has broadened my horizons. I have always wanted to do something for the women back in my home country and inspire them to study and move higher levels in life and in everything they do. I worked as a youth activist and social worker in non-profit organizations which has made me more passionate about working for the community and abide by the motto “People for others”. My decision to enroll at Dallas College has to be the best decision I have ever made. The classes and the way of teaching and learning is so fruitful. Everyone is helpful from the faculty to admissions, everyone is there to help you. After I graduate from Dallas College I will be transferring into a four year to pursue my Undergraduate degree in Computer Science. I want to motivate girls from my country to get into the technical field and pursue their dreams and goals. Thank you.

I want to help them in the future.

I’m D., a 2nd year UX design student. I am a 20-year-old young Turkish living in America. Ever since I was a child, I have had an interest in things that require creative thinking. While researching professions in the process of growing up, I preferred architecture like a child, most of whom are interested in painting. Towards the end of high school, I realized that this was a wish by heart, that it was a profession that was chosen with the awareness that it was a profession that would be accepted by society, and I decided to choose the UX design department by focusing on how I would be happy and successful. Although most people know this profession only as website design and reduce its impact, it is a department that has a direct relationship with human psychology. Since it is a major that includes both parts, this both scares and excites me. I don’t mind that I accept fear as a challenge, on the contrary, I am even more motivated. Unfortunately, it is getting harder to study in America due to currency, so scholarship acceptance is very valuable for us, international students. The troubles we experience in life can shape us in many ways. I want to help them in the future, especially financially, because the troubles I’ve had since I came to America are my experience for those who will come after me and I want them to live more easily. Although I know that school has an important place in a person’s life, I do not think that school alone is sufficient in terms of personal development and intellectual perspective. For this reason, I take care to take courses outside of school and do research. I think it has improved my self-discipline since there is no deadline or obligation. As I enter my third year in America and things are starting to get harder, this scholarship will help me a lot, especially financially. I would like to thank the Generosity Foundation for their support. As a community college student, while I had the stress of both my classes and my transfer to the university for four years, this support of the foundation has lifted a great burden and stress from me. Since I have one semester left to complete my core classes before I transfer to a -four-year university, I want to take Dallas College faculty and administrators for being so kind and helpful especially for international student.

Pursuing my education seemed like a dream

To the Generosity Foundation, My heart is filled with the utmost respect writing this letter. Firstly, I would like to show gratitude to the generosity foundation to provide me this golden opportunity. Secondly, I would like to thank them with my whole heart to elect me as one of the recipients of the North Star Turkish Scholarship of Dallas. I am being emotional while writing this letter as the effect of this scholarship on my life can’t be expressed in words. Receiving this scholarship at this time feels like a blessing. I really want to express how much it means to me especially considering the circumstances my family. I have been going through a lot lately. With the loss of my father, our financial situation has become worse. Pursuing my education seemed like a dream. Your kindness, through the North Star Turkish Scholarship has brought a ray of hope into my life reigniting my dreams and inspiring me to persevere in my education with determination. The immense weight of the responsibilities I carried was becoming nearly unbearable. I frequently questioned whether I would ever be able to afford furthering my education. Nonetheless, your unwavering support has alleviated the burden on my finances to a certain extent. The dedication of your foundation to empowering students such as me stands as proof of the life changing potential of education. Having been awarded this scholarship, the burden on my finances will be minimized. I can now devote myself to my studies without thinking too much about my finances. I am committed to seizing this opportunity, and I assure you that I will work diligently to prove myself of the trust you have bestowed upon me. I would like to express my gratitude to the Generosity Foundation for awarding me with the North Star Turkish Scholarship of Dallas. Your generosity and faith in my abilities have truly touched me, igniting a spark within me which will help me to pursue a more promising future.

Dear North Star Turish Scholarship Donor, I hope this letter finds you well. First and foremost, I want to express my deepest gratitude for your incredible generosity in providing the North Star Turish Scholarship. Your belief in the potential of students like me to make a difference in our community is truly inspiring, and I am honored to be a recipient of your support. Allow me to share a little about myself and my journey. I hail from the vibrant country Zambia, where I have lived with my loving family throughout my life. Growing up in a household that cherished education, I always dreamed of pursuing a college degree. However, being among the people in my immediate family to attend college came with its share of challenges. Financial constraints and a lack of guidance made the path seem daunting, but I remained steadfast in my determination to achieve this goal. During my high school years, I worked hard to excel academically, and I actively participated in various extracurricular activities and community service projects. These experiences taught me the value of compassion, teamwork, and the power of giving back to society. Choosing Dallas College was an easy decision for me. Not only is it a reputable institution with a diverse and inclusive community, but it also offers a wide range of opportunities for personal and academic growth. I have been fortunate to have some wonderful professors who have ignited my passion for human biology. Their enthusiasm and dedication to their subjects have made my classes all the more engaging and enjoyable. I am constantly inspired to delve deeper into the intricacies of the human body and its functions. Upon graduating from Dallas College, my plan is to transfer to a four-year university and pursue a Master’s in Assistant Physician. I am passionate about making a positive impact on people’s lives through healthcare. I firmly believe that the skills and knowledge I acquire during my time at Dallas College will form a strong foundation for my future endeavors. Your generous contribution has not only made it possible for me to pursue my education but has also invested in the future of Dallas College. I promise you that I will make the most of this opportunity and strive to be an active and engaged member of the college community. Once again, I am sincerely grateful for the North Star Turkish Scholarship and the confidence you have shown in me.
