It is an honor to share that Ilke Boyaci, the industrial engineering doctoral student who has been selected to receive the Yaman Yener Memorial Graduate Scholarship Fund for the 2017-2018 academic year. Ilke earned a master’s degree in industrial engineering from Northeastern in 2011, following her undergraduate studies at Kırıkkale Üniversitesi. During her graduate career, she has led a project at Massachusetts General Hospital in an effort to improve the treatment of patients with diabetes and her work has the potential to help countless individuals. In her letter to us she says “In 2009, my first year in United States, I had my first in-person meeting Professor Yener. He was the first faculty I had met with at Northeastern University. He was kind and generous enough to accommodate me in his busy schedule, and to share his most valuable insight and expertise starting my graduate journey at Northeastern University. After my admission to Northeastern, we always kept in touch, and it was such a warm feeling to have him call me by name and to see his kind, fatherly smile every time I ran into him in the Snell Engineering Building. Being from the same country, sharing the same roots, I was always very proud to mention him and his success in my conversations with people. That is why this scholarship has a very special and sentimental meaning to me… It is difficult to reflect my feelings for Professor Yener, and his memorial scholarship, in words. I am most certain that what I have written is not nearly enough to express my gratitude, like the tears I had in my eyes when I heard that he is now in Heaven”. Yaman was a welcoming presence for her, and she looks back on her memories of him with fondness…

En cok neyini özledim biliyor musun?... O kalin merceklerin arkasından piril piril sevkatle bakan gözlerini… Keyif aldiginda dişlerini sikip yaramaz bir çocuk gibi gulusunu, ve gülerek baksan bile o sabitlenmiş catik kaslarini!… Tombik parmaklarinin arasinda ki dolmakalemini kullanarak yazdigin o güzel el yazilarinini… Ama sabahlari gelip yanagimdan opup sonra da makas alarak beni uyandirman en cok ozledigim… Inan ki her sabah bunu düşünerek uyanip günüme devam ediyorum… Seni cok özledim baba…

We are delighted to share information about the 2016-2017 beneficiary of the fund that bears Yaman’s name. The College of Engineering Graduate Studies Office has selected a second-year Industrial Engineering Ph.D. student named Melike Hazal Can to receive the scholarship. She was born and raised in Izmir, Turkey. She has her BS degree in Industrial Engineering from Istanbul Technical University, and her MS degree in Industrial Engineering from Bogazici University. In her letter to us she says “Currently I am in my second year of the PhD program in Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University, with a concentration in healthcare systems. When I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree at Istanbul Technical University, I learned that Industrial Engineering provides various tools to solve different kinds of problems in healthcare. I always wanted to make a significant positive impact on the lives of people in the community. Therefore, I decided to specialize in healthcare as my main line of research, and I have been doing research in healthcare applications since that time. I plan to pursue an academic career by focusing on healthcare applications upon graduating from Northeastern University”. We are gratified by the impact this fund is able to have on her academic career and her ambitions to follow Yaman’s lead and be a role model to the next generation of engineers. We are truly ensuring that my husband’s memory and legacy will provide strong and lasting support and encouragement for graduate students at Northeastern. Thank you Melike Hazal!

I am so honored to be the recipient of the Yaman Yener Memorial Graduate Scholarship this academic year. Unfortunately, I could not have the chance to meet Professor Yener in person. However, I have been very well-informed about his distinguished academic studies, his invaluable support for Turkish students, specifically for female students’ education. He was not only a very successful professor in his field, but also a great inspiration for all of his students, academicians both in Turkey and in the US (especially at Northeastern) by encouraging and supporting hundreds of highly talented and promising Turkish students to get higher education in the US and pursue a career in academia. I believe that many of his students, Turkish researchers and academicians, including myself, would honor his name and continue his legacy by providing guidance and support to the next generations for their higher education, who are willing to take the science one step further. I am deeply grateful to Mrs. Demet Yener, Ms. Zeynep Yener and all donors for their support which will help me to accomplish continued success in my academic life.
