Turkey Scholarships

Our country opened its doors to many international students for their education both in the pre-Republic and the Republic period, and scholarships were provided to those students for them to receive a distinguished education in our country.

While, in 1960s, scholarships were being provided within the framework of bilateral agreements signed with other states; especially with the support of the late President Turgut Özal, international student policy of our country was systematized for the first time in 1992 and a project titled as "Great Student Project" was initiated.

Since the beginning of the 2000s, major developments exhibited in all areas from Turkey's foreign policy to culture, social policy to economic development; it was also reflected in international education paradigm of the country and caused important steps to be taken in the said area.

Within the framework of the tasks entrusted to our Presidency established in 2010, "Turkey Scholarships" program has been implemented with our Presidency’s initiatives and other relevant agencies cooperation in 2012 and higher education scholarships provided by our country for international students was updated.
