Acquaintance with WLI: “I heard about WLI last year. The faculty has offered students who were interested in a research fund to apply, and I realized I should. we were asked to present an abstract of our study. Back then, I was only starting to formulate it and was happy for the opportunity. The application had ‘forced’ me to clarify my research proposal, and that usually takes time. It motivated me to start.
“I did not know the organization before winning the scholarship and I slowly familiarize myself with it. In the scholarship award winning ceremony I was really impressed by the organization’s spirit of generosity.”
