Scholarships for Students in Turkey

Higher Education Scholarships

TEV UK grants scholarships for higher education to Turkish students who are academically successful in school but in need of financial support.



Candidates enrolled in Turkish state universities, who are not already receiving a grant from any other public or private institution, are eligible for application.



Evaluation of the selected students’ progress is based on information collected from the relevant higher education institutions every year. The scholarship grant continues until the student graduates from the relevant higher education institution.
