Dear Friends,
We are glad to share information about an exciting new campaign. Mr. Enes Kanter of the Oklahoma City Thunder announced the start of a new education fund for the benefit of underprivileged aspiring female university students. Turkish American Society of Michigan and its sister organizations throughout the US are joining forces with Embrace Relief to support this campaign.With the high costs associated with higher education in today’s world, Mr. Kanter and Embrace Relief established an education fund; which this year will award selected students with a $2500 scholarship. The campaign target is to award 40 students in total. Mr. Kanter has committed to the program an initial $100 donation every other day over the course of the next 6 months. 

The campaign has officially started and we are currently collecting donations. In order to encourage outside contributions, Mr. Kanter has graciously donated over 250 rewards including autographed memorabilia, game tickets and even dinner with Enes Kanter himself.
The applications for the scholarships will begin in February and all awardees will be invited to attend a presentation gala on May 2015. To make a donation and receive the reward, please go towww.embracerelief.org/eneskanter.
