Hi, my name is Alphan Uysal. I'm a highschool student from Turkey going to Uskudar American Academy. I was accepted to NYU Stern's Class of 2024, though, it seems that I might have to decline this offer.
While I applied for financial aid, I was only given an amount of aid that covers %28 of the tuition costs. Unfortunately I needed at least %50 of the university costs in scholarships. I lost my father the day before the high school entrance exams, and the university costs with this partial scholarship is too much for my mother to undertake by herself.
I want to study finance in the future, and NYU Stern is my dream school which I believe offers the best education and opportunities for me to thrive. I am saddened by the fact that there is a chance of me missing out on my acceptance to this highly prestigious school simply due to my financial situation.
Now, I'm asking for any type of support you can lend me to achieve my dreams, and grow myself as a better person. Any amount of your help carries much significance, as I'm a firm believer that it is the thought that counts for things like this. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this far, and I also hope that we can make this dream of mine come true.
