Scholarship program for the academic year 2016/2017
Daughters for Life scholars are blooming here and there!
Early this month, three of DFL scholars at New College of Florida, Loureen, Diana, and Simona, were invited to do a presentation and a panel discussion at Pineview high school club " Peace Jam", where they have talked about the Daughters for Life Foundation's mission and story as well as their experiences.
They have also answered questions included issues about social justice, the Syrian crisis and the role of Daughters for Life's scholars in that, world peace and the role of youth in it. They have also taught them "Dabkeh" that they performed together in the class.
Our scholar, Mayar Tharowat, has participated recently in the WISE conference in Toronto, “Women in Science and Engineering”. Mayar is a DFL 2015 scholar who studies Physics at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, ON.
“I'm grateful to get this great chance as a scholar for Daughters for Life Foundation to improve myself as a scientist woman. Being the only first-year student among third and fourth year and even graduate students in the poster competition, opened my eyes to a higher level and filled me with eager to work harder,” commented Mayar on her experience.
