Dear donor,

We have recently published our biennial activity report and we would like to share some numbers about our university scholarships.

The number of university scholarships given in 2020-21 was 5.430; in 2021-2022 it was 6.970. The number increased by 60% in 2022-23 reaching 9.090 students; 6041 female and 3049 male students. In total 42.671 female and 18.371 male students so far received scholarships from CYDD.

In 2022-23, the students have chosen different fields of study; 1117 students continued their studies in medicine, 1061 studied engineering and 1138 have chosen various faculties of education. Other preferred fields were health studies, nursing, dentistry and pharmacy which offer a better chance of finding jobs after graduation. At the moment we are still working on applications for new scholarships for 2023-24 school year and we hope to give about 12000 university scholarships.

Due to accommodation problems in big cities, students who are eligible to enter important universities outside of their hometowns, unfortunately started to opt for smaller and less important universities in their hometowns. CYDD started to give monthly 2500 tl accommodation scholarships to a number of successful students to overcome this problem so that they can study in large cities like Istanbul and Ankara.

We believe educated young people are the future of our country and our republic and we hope to invest in more of them with your support.

Thank you..
