Almost 300 Sylff Fellows Receive COVID-19 Relief to Continue Studies, Start New Careers (2) [2022/01/13]
In his letter dated July 5, 2021, Mr. Seth Owusu-Mante, a 2019 fellow at the Fletcher School of Tufts University in Massachusetts, the United States, expressed his “sincere appreciation” for the Sylff COVID-19 Relief award, which enabled him to start his PhD course at The Fletcher School in Fall 2021.

“Thank you for supporting my journey towards pursuing a career in teaching, energy policy consultancy, and evidence-based research that informs policies consistent with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change,” he said, adding: “Not only will I remain an active member of the Sylff community but in the future, I am confident about reciprocating the benefits through mentoring and financial gifts in support of younger fellows.”

Ms. Gabriele Slizyte, a 2019 fellow at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP) of France, wrote in her July 24 letter: “Since the outbreak of the pandemic, I am feeling your support which inspires me each day to move forwards and to seek new academic heights.” “With the help of the COVID-19 Relief for Sylff Fellows 2021, I will be able to cover my living expenses in France and hopefully pay a visit to my family which I have not seen since last year.”

“As my country starts reopening, I cannot wait to renew my professional activities and to present my latest research in various conferences in France,” she wrote.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your philanthropic activities which bring so much optimism into this world,” she said, adding: “I am proud to be a Sylff’s fellow and I am looking forward to support and to mentor the younger fellows in the future.”

We are committed to helping fellows pursue their goals during these difficult times. I am particularly happy that many of the grant recipients expressed their willingness to be active in the Sylff Association and mentor young fellows. I sincerely hope that the relief funds have made a real difference in helping the fellows either continue their studies and research or transition smoothly to the labor market.
