120 Students Passed the Darussafaka Entrance Exam Successfully
By Mustafa Ali Caylan - Fundraising Specialist
Today, the 158-year-old Darussafaka Society creates a better future for high potential students who lost one or both parents and are from financially disadvantaged communities. At its school, the Society provides high-quality formal education to eligible students, starting at fifth grade through to the end of high school.
Every year, fourth-grade students who lost one or both parents apply for the Darussafaka Entrance Exam.
The Darussafaka Entrance Exam was held in 28 cities, on 20 June 2021and 1508 students have participated in the exam. Later a week, the exam results have been announced. 120 students passed the exam successfully and have the right to begin their education at the Darussafaka Schools in September 2021, on a full scholarship and full boarding status.
Darussafaka works toward closing the achievement gap in Turkey by ensuring equal access to education. The Society can achieve this goal by offering full scholarships to all students who are admitted to its schools, thanks to the unwavering support of its donors. Darussafaka Society receives no state funding. In addition to all educational expenditures, student’s daily needs such as clothing, accommodation, food, and health services are all covered by donations to the Society. Darüssafaka also supports its graduates by providing scholarships for their university education.
Each student at Darüssafaka is a member of one of the most extensive and connected families in Turkey. The sense of fraternity, and the support that comes with it, remain with our students throughout both their personal and professional lives.
Thank you once again for making these accomplishments possible and sharing in our mission to create "equal opportunity in education” in Turkey.
