General Information On Scholarships

Sabancı Foundation scholarships are awarded so that successful students with financial difficulties can pursue a university education. Scholarships are not bound to any compulsory service or repayment obligation. Scholarships are monthly transferred to the recipient student's bank account between October and June.

Additionally, since the start of the 2009-2010 academic year, the “Sabancı Foundation-Vista Scholarship” has been put into practice through the grants of the Vista Tourism and Travel Agency. “Other Scholarships” by conditional donations are determined by the donors.
