Iffath Choudhury, a student in the Daniel Trust Foundation High School Mentoring Program, has received a full tuition scholarship from Fairfield University. "I am so happy to receive the Bridgeport Tuition Grant," said Iffath, who is graduating from Bassick High School this June. "I feel much better now as I was worried I wouldn't receive the scholarship. I am thankful to Fairfield University for giving me this opportunity." Iffath plans to attend the Business School at Fairfield University this Fall.
The Bridgeport Tuition Grant was designed to assist Bridgeport high school graduates, whose annual family income is $50,000 or less and whose assets are at a reasonable level for such annual income, with the costs of college, by providing a full tuition scholarship. "Words cannot express how excited I am for Iffath," said Daniel Trust, Founder and CEO of The Daniel Trust Foundation. "Iffath is an amazing young woman with a bright future. She is going to make this world a better place." Iffath will become a scholar in the Daniel Trust Foundation Scholarship Program on June 2, 2017 at the 4th Annual Daniel Trust Awards. Once students graduate from our high school mentoring program, they receive a $2,000 scholarship ($500 per year for 4 years) to help them pay for their college textbooks and other related college expenses.
