Are scholarships reimbursable?

Scholarships are non-refundable.

What should I do if I cannot attend the interviews?

The General Directorate decides whether students who miss the application period for scholarship programs due to force majeure, although the conditions are suitable, will be admitted to the program, provided that their demands do not exceed the determined annual quota.

My house is very close to the dormitory, is it okay if I only come to the lesson and not stay in the dormitory?

Since our scholarship program is a program in which a dormitory, scholarship and course are applied together, it is not possible to stay outside of the specified accommodation places.

Is participation in the camps compulsory? It will be difficult for us in the summer, is it okay if I don’t attend the camp?

Yes, participation in the camps is mandatory, except for health problems and being abroad within the scope of exchange programs.

Otherwise, your scholarship status will be evaluated by the Foundation.

Is it possible for me not to attend some classes? (What if I only attend the Arabic class?)

The academy curriculum is a whole and you have to attend the entire program.

I’m very busy during the year, is it okay if I just join the camp?

Our camps support our additional course program throughout the year, so participation in the camp is mandatory.

What happens if I participate in exchange programs?

In foreign exchange programs such as Erasmus, your scholarship right is frozen and activated upon your return, provided you provide information.

In domestic exchange programs such as Farabi, if our scholarship program is implemented in the province you go to, your scholarship will be evaluated by the commission. In provinces where we do not have a scholarship program, your scholarship will be terminated.

If you transfer between universities voluntarily, your scholarship status will be evaluated if the program is implemented in the province you transferred to.

I am a second education student, can I join the program?

Students in secondary education, non-formal and associate degree programs cannot benefit from the program.
