Scholarships at Koç University for international students

Koç University prides itself in offering scholarship packages for high-caliber international and domestic undergraduate and graduate students that meet our selective admissions criteria.

Undergraduate International Scholarships

Koç University awards merit-based tuition scholarships of 50% or 100% to outstanding candidates each year (except for Medicine).  There is no separate application period or scholarship form. All candidates will be informed if they have been awarded a scholarship or not with their admission offer. To be considered for a merit-based scholarship please keep the following information in mind before submitting your application:

  • Submitting an application without one of the required exam scores (SAT/ACT, IB, A-Levels, or others) significantly diminishes your admission chances and therefore your scholarship chances. You can see the list of eligible exam scores here.
  • All admitted students are first evaluated for a merit-based scholarship by the Admissions Committee on the basis of academic merit only (need-blind). These scholarships can be awarded for 50% or 100% of the annual tuition for the duration of the program. Merit-based scholarships do not include any other benefits (housing, living expenses, books, etc).
  • Scholarship results are communicated to candidates with the admission offer letter from our Registrar’s Office via email on the dates indicated here.
  • For specific scholarships based on citizenship please visit the pages under “Scholarships” on this website or email us at study@ku.edu.tr for details.

Graduate International Scholarships (Master with Thesis/Research Masters)

To be considered for a scholarship:

  • Complete and submit the online application form for your Master with Thesis program of interest with all the required documents (this includes a valid GRE/GMAT and TOEFL test score). There are NO SEPARATE SCHOLARSHIP FORMS. Graduate program applications are available here.
  • Submitting an application without the required exam scores (GRE/GMAT, TOEFL) significantly diminishes your admission chances and therefore your scholarship chances.
  • All admitted Master with Thesis students are awarded 100% merit-based scholarships by the relevant Graduate School (except for the Graduate School of Health Sciences). Merit-based scholarships may also include other benefits (housing, living expenses, health insurance) depending on the Graduate School. Please note that the LLM with Thesis program is not included in this category.
  • Scholarship results are communicated to candidates with the admission offer letter from the relevant Graduate School via email on the dates indicated on their respective websites under “Admission”.
  • For specific Master scholarships based on citizenship please visit the pages under “Scholarships” on this website or email us at study@ku.edu.tr for details
