Türkiye Scholarships Received an Overwhelming Number of Applications in 2016
Türkiye Scholarships received an overwhelming number of strong applications this year. Almost 95 thousand applications were submitted from 175 countries, out of which about 5 thousand will be awarded scholarships.
Candidates will be assessed by committees consisting of academicians and experts on the basis of their academic success, qualifications and future goals. Approximately 5 thousand candidates will be deemed eligible for Türkiye Scholarships after a careful review of the applications by the assessment committees. Eligible candidates will get an opportunity to gain new and unforgettable experience of living and studying in Turkey.
It is noteworthy that there has been a significant increase in the number of applications from the countries with which Turkey has deeply rooted historical and cultural relations. Our international students and alumni from those countries have particularly played an important role as ambassadors and voluntary promoters of Türkiye Scholarships in their countries.
