Koc University scholarships
Scholarships for international students
Koç University evaluates automatically all new undergraduate international candidates and international undergraduate transfer candidates for full (100%) or partial (25%, 50%, or 75%) tuition-only scholarships on the basis of academic merit (except for Medicine).
How to apply for a scholarship?
Merit scholarships are awarded on the consideration of all academic and extra-curricular documents and information that demonstrate outstanding performance and potential. There are no specific test scores or GPAs that automatically award a full or partial merit scholarship.
There is no separate form or application period for merit scholarships. Admitted candidates receive information in their offer letter as to whether they have been awarded a scholarship or not.
What do our scholarships cover?
Undergraduate international or international transfer scholarships cover full or partial tuition fees for each academic year and are awarded for the duration of the undergraduate program (4 years).
Note: The School of Medicine does NOT award any type of merit or need-based scholarships for admitted international students. You should carefully consider before applying if you are able to fund your Medicine studies without a scholarship.
