To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter to support the application of Mr. Unsal Genc for a graduate study program at your University.
I am the head of the Directorate of Project Implementation in Republic of Turkey Ministry for EU Affairs. Our directorate is the lead institution for Civil Society Sector in Turkey (2014 – 2020) and responsible for programming and implementing projects with a budget of 190 million Euros to create a better civil environment and active civil society in Turkey.
Mr. Genc, the applicant, has been working for our Department since 2011. He is one of the brightest, the most imaginative and hardworking EU Affairs Experts we have among a number of highly qualified experts. We have been benefiting so much not only from his well-established knowledge but also from his bright ideas and practical decisions. It has been a great pleasure for me to work with such a talented expert having hard work and strong personality.
I had opportunity to know him closely and we worked together in several issues together. What strikes me about him is his diligence and meticulous work as well as his harmony and cooperation with his colleagues. He also contributes greatly to our institution with the knowledge he acquired during his academic studies. I am proud of having such a colleague among us.
In 2015, Mr. Genc has completed his expertise thesis for our Ministry, a study on procedures of technical assistance mechanisms mainly provided to CSOs. I have appointed him as a senior expert for execution of several crucial projects. As far as I have observed, Mr. Genc has been highly successful in this post and has established productive relations with both his colleagues and the CSOs as a public agent.
We strongly believe that a master degree program at your distinguished institution will not only enrich the applicant’s abilities and skills but also will provide our Ministry with remarkable benefits after he completes this academic program.
I would like to stress that Mr. Genc has a resourceful personality, an impressive analytical mind and is a quick learner. I do observe him working in good harmony with his colleagues, both senior and junior. He acts very effectively in teamwork and always completes the tasks given to him in a timely and professional manner.
I have no doubt that Mr. Genc will live up to the requirements and expectations for a graduate study at your esteemed University. I definitely support his efforts to further his academic and professional qualifications and confidently recommend him as a candidate at your University.
