GRATITUDE FUND FOR CORONA HEREOS
By Serkan Calsr - Project Leader
In 2019-2020 academic year, we had to face COVID-19 pandemic and the damages it created all over the world. As a response to this disaster, as TEV, we are carrying out the project (GRATITUDE TO CORONA HEROES FUND) to support the children whose families had to deal with this pyschologic and financial struggle.
Thanks to your precious donations, we raised $16,000 which created a great impact on the lives of students who would not otherwise have access to higher education.
You can see the summary of the project in the attached two images.
We struggled against covid-19 but we couldn't beat it.Therefore new education year will be online.All the students are unhappy.Scholarshipholders of last year will get their scholarships without looking for their academic success because of pandemic.On the other hand there were 1246 applications to get scholarships this year.As a result we decided to increase scholarships from 360 to 400 depending on donations of RIOT GAMES and JP MORGAN CHASE for new scholarships in the summer.We thank them. Among 1246 application only 422 candidates were invited to online interview,the rest were eliminated because of criteria related to academic success and family revenue.We made online interviews within 10 days and determine 85 new scholarship holders.
Our traditional donors-scholarship holders meetings were made online last week.19 donors and 222 scholarship holders met 4 days.During meetings Mr Demiral who is founder of The Coaching Company gave a speech about coaching support.Afterwards 105 students demanded coaching support.Also about 100 of them wanted to have mentor.
I hope I'll write next report when covid19 leaves from the world
