The story of

Participant 13


THIS IS BUT ONE EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE OF INCREDIBLE WORK STUDENTS ARE CAPABLE OF CREATING THAT GRADES DO NOT, AND CANNOT, CAPTURE OR DEMONSTRATE.


This project is grant proposal, written by a grade twelve student, which serves as the perfect example of a bright and clearly engaged student who may not have been accepted to undergraduate study because of the prerequisite mark required for admission.  Through thoughtful, clear, and concise language the student demonstrated their ability to place themselves in the position of the Turkish government and work through complex problems on a range of topics. The aid proposal breaks down the challenges being faced by Turkey, which specific ones are of most importance, and clearly outlines how the funds will be used and how they will have an impact on the issues outlined. Participant 13’s grant proposal is a very informative and dynamic piece of writing, showing the student’s capabilities in interpreting data, supporting a thesis in a persuasive essay, and understanding the complex world of international relations, political science, immigration challenges, and climate challenges. Many of these various topics are covered, and can be easily linked to, university curricula across faculties and even across years of study.

 

"Unfortunately, Turkey is not well prepared for this shift in our demographics, thus if we win, our aim is to use a portion of the aid money to improve and create government programs to help not only refugees, but our ageing population and impoverished citizens as well."

How does this connect to KPU?
