This year, 85 of our scholars received their diplomas at the graduation ceremony where Mrs and Mr Aygündüz were invited. Most of the graduates started their business lives.
Miss D.G. and E.Z.S., our scholars who graduated last July, and their families, and Mr. and Mrs. Aygündüz had dinner and were presented with TEV badges.
The 2023-24 academic year has started. While we increased the number of scholarships to 850 this year, we increased the scholarship amount to 2500 TL. We did not take into account the success criteria due to the earthquake disaster we experienced last year. The scholarships of students who received scholarships last year and failed will continue this year. 2050 for the new 275 scholarships. We have received applications. As a result of the first elimination of artificial intelligence, we will interview 984 candidates. Our graduate scholars Miss C.Ü and Mr S.Ö.K will assist Mr Aygündüz in these interviews.
It ends in 2022-23 school year and 118 of our scholarships will graduate if they are successful in the exams. Our 2.semester tradonal Graduates-Scholarship meetings were at the end of April with a very large participation.We had dinner together with our graduates.Our purpose was to provide job offers to our scholars who will graduate.
At the beginning of May, Mr. AYGÜNDÜZ was with the members of the UAE METU community at the invitation of our donor, Consul General of Dubai Mr Onur Saylan, and after the visit, the additional support that will increase the number of 8 scholarship holders to 35 in October has been transferred to our fund
We set the donation target for 2023 as 6.600.000 TL, increasing the actual figure of 2022 by 30%. Today, we have increased this target to 8.600.000 TL thanks to your unique contributions.
While I was writing this report, I wished to be in a very good mood, but unfortunately the earthquake prevented it. About 60,000 people lost their lives under 15.000 collapsed buildings.We also identified METU students who lost their family members and homes after the earthquake, as a result of the research conducted by our scholars. Helping these students We matched them with our graduates who wanted to donate money directly to their bank accounts. A total of 1,068,000 TL was sent to 150 earthquake-affected students. In addition, we have sent 2 scholarships to our earthquake survivors this month. Starting from March, we will start giving scholarships to the students who were most affected by the earthquake in terms of loss of life and property. We will provide scholarships to earthquake victims who will win our university and become students next October. That's why we need your increased support. Last year, we broke a record by realizing our budget estimate of 3,300,000 TL to 5,200,000 TL. This year's donation estimate is 6,500,000 TL. I believe we will easily exceed this target with your support. We organized the traditional alumni-scholarship meetings on the campus between 21-24 December 2022. Our 20 graduates came together with 700 scholars in 4 days and got to know each other. Our 52 scholars who wanted to benefit from our "coach support" program this year were matched with internationally certified coaches by Naci Demiral, the founder of The Coaching Company and his team, who have voluntarily provided this support to us for 6 years. The mentors of our 57 scholars who want mentor support will be determined next week.
