Education, which we see as a fundamental right, is a primary strategic work area for Sabancı Foundation. Since our establishment, we have been striving to support the building of a brighter future with our scholarships given with an understanding of equal opportunity in education.
The number of scholarships awarded by the Foundation since its establishment has reached 48 thousand as of the end of 2019. In 2019, we provided nearly 1,500 scholarships, 294 of which were new.
Our scholarship program, which has no repayment obligation, attracts a lot of attention from successful students who are starting their higher education and helps them continue their studies.
Message from a scholar:
“Thanks to the moral and material support that you provided throughout my college life for four years, I completed my college education and have become a teacher. I feel rightfully proud to have received a scholarship from Sabancı Foundation, which adopts contributing to the educational, cultural and social development of Turkey as a principle. I’d like to share with you that in the future, I will raise good and successful students that you will deem worthy of a scholarship and thus will sincerely fulfill my duty of loyalty to your Foundation.”
The amount of monthly scholarship for the period of 2019-2020 is set to be 700 TL for undergraduates, 310 TL for associate degree programs (Vista Scholarship), 470 TL for high school students and 250 TL for primary school students. The scholarships are paid monthly for 9 months between October and June.
In a gathering hosted by Güler Sabancı at Sakıp Sabancı Museum, Sabancı Foundation brought together for the first time all scholars that were supported under the scholarship program for 45 years on February 19, 2019. Following Güler Sabancı’s opening speech at the scholars gathering attended by more than 500 scholars, an introduction presentation of our Foundation was made and the Sabancı Foundation Scholars Mentorship Program was introduced.
The mentorship program, which includes current and graduate scholars, aims to allow scholars to establish mentor-mentee relationships and share their experience with each other. Moreover, by building a bridge between scholars via this program, it blends the excitement of current students with the experiences of graduates under one roof. As a part of the program, we brought together 94 mentors and 159 mentees (a total of 253 graduate and current scholars).
