It gives me immense joy to write this thank you note to the SNU President Fellowship committee. This scholarship has provided me with a cracking chance to research fresh avenues in the field of medical sciences which I was dreaming of. SNU President Fellowship is a very potent model to prove to the world that how a financial support contributed to a deserving candidate could change the future of the student as well as the country. I highly appreciate the efforts made by the committee to uplift the standard of life of deserving candidates.
