Wafeeq has been selected to attend the National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) Engineering Program; June 2014;@ American University,Washington,D.C. This prestigious program selects outstanding high school students from around the world to participate based on academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and demonstrated leadership potential.
Students attending the NSLC Engineering Program at the American University in Washington, DC have the special opportunity to learn from engineers at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division as they design, build and test a robot in a challenging engineering underwater robotics project created in conjunction with NAVSEA (the U.S Naval Sea System Command).
While in Washington, D.C., NSLC students interact with some of our nation's top engineers as they meet professionals from organizations including the National institute of Standards and Technology, the National Air and Space Museum and the U.S. Department of Energy. The cost for me to attend the conference will be $4,200. This includes the program fees, room and board, course materials, program activities, travel to the conference and money for other incidental expenses. My family cannot afford the entire amount; therefore, I am requesting your assistance. So far, I have raised $1,200, but I still need to raise an additional $3,000 preferably by May 15th, or as soon as possible.
Your financial support in any amount will make a big difference in helping me attend the NSLC program.
Thanks everyone for your support.
