Challenge

Most of poor students come from rural areas of the country,Some of them succeed to get the acceptance but they don't have enough money for meals and bed.Some of them are orphans or have fragmented families. So they have to turn back to their willages and towns. That is why they need scholarships.150 students have scholarships in 2015 ,this year 225 students will be supported. Scholarship holders also gets social and cultural supports and are interested in sociaL responsibility projects.

Solution

If these students are not supported by scolarships,they loose the chance to graduate from the university although they had got highest points in the examination of university acceptance.Turkey is a developing country but average education is primary school.We need much more educated people.Scholarships solve their monetary problems.On the other hand mentors who are older graduates help to eliminate their social, psychological and cultural problems in the meetings which ara organized in campus.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims to support all students who are successfull but need of money..METU graduates are being seeked and preferred by international companies in the World.So these students will have the same chance.While supporting successfull students one of our aims is to create young generations who believe in universal values such as democracy,secularism,human rights,woman-man equality etc.
