The TEV (Turkish Educational Foundation) is developing, with the collaboration of Fundación MAPFRE, a program to support the education of 71 students in Turkey.
The beneficiaries are successful young people with academic potential but who do not possess sufficient financial resources. The program is helping 41 undergraduates between the ages of 18 and 21 and also 30 more university students with disabilities.
The students are chosen by a Scholarship Commission, consisting of representatives of the universities they will attend along with a TEV representative. Once selected, the students will receive a monthly amount that is sufficient to cover the expenses of the academic year.
The Turkish Educational Foundation was founded in 1967 under the leadership of Vehbi Koç, together with a group of 205 benefactors determined to promote better education. Its mission is to foster a fairer and more equitable society in which young Turks who wish to study, but who lack the sufficient financial resources, can do so.
