Congratulations to Oyshakhon Eshonova (Master of Arts in TESOL), Regional Scholarship Recipient!
Oyshakhon Eshonova (Tajikistan)
I would like to express my gratitude to Virginia International University for awarding me with a full tuition “Regional Scholarship”. There is no doubt that this contribution will excel my professional development and will motivate me to study harder.
Back in Tajikistan, I worked as an ESL teacher. Therefore, my decision of pursuing a Master in TESOL was obvious. I applied to several different institutions in the US. However, VIU has an advantage in campus size, location, affordability, and student body diversity. I love that the campus is not huge, and as a student, I am getting the necessary attention from professors and university staff. I
I am sure that I will gain immense professional skills by working with the faculty from my program. Upon completion of my degree and I will return to Tajikistan as a highly qualified ESL teacher.
When it comes to applying for scholarships, a student should know that it takes time, hard work, and passion. A strategic plan is required to be implemented to make sure your scholarship application is more efficient and effective. I am proud to be chosen among other scholarship applicants and eager to contribute to VIU’s academic and cultural life in the future. Thank you VIU!
