Awards and Honors:

I gained a full scholarship from the Turkish Ministry of Education to complete my graduate studies in the United States (2009). My score on the ALES exam, the Turkish equivalent of the GRE, enabled me to earn this full scholarship which was awarded to only seventeen students. This government supported program sends students to study abroad with the requirement that they return to serve as a faculty member in one of the public universities in Turkey. Due to the opportunity provided by the Turkish Government, I had attended the Center for Intensive English Studies (CIES) at Florida State University (FSU) between August 2010 and June 2011.

The Republic of Turkey Ministry of National Education Master's Degree and Ph.D. Scholarship, 2009.
