The Koç University Undergraduate Admissions Scholarships Committee is aware of the current barriers faced by some international applicants to provide valid financial documents (bank statements, statements of salary, tax reports) due to banks and other issuing institutions being closed or operating in a reduced capacity in their countries of residence.

If you will apply for a need-based scholarship please include as many supporting documents as possible even if they have not been officially stamped or certified that your family can obtain via online channels. Make sure they are translated to English or Turkish (a notarized translation is not required at this point)

If you have further questions you can email us at study@ku.edu.tr indicating your REGAPP application number.

All documents should be translated to English or Turkish by a notary public or certified by the issuing institution. Providing false or missing financial information will be liable to having your admission offer revoked.

Merit scholarships are awarded on the consideration of all academic and extra-curricular documents and information that demonstrate an outstanding performance and potential. There are no specific test scores or GPA that automatically award a merit scholaship.

Please note there can be no reconsiderations of scholarship decisions so refrain from contacting the Admissions Committee or other Koç University units to request re-evaluation of your admission or scholarship offer decision.

What do 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 or 6 years for Medicine) and scholarship holders are  subject to the academic and discipline regulations of Koç University undergraduate students.

If you are awarded a Koç University Scholarship you are not eligible to apply to any other Koç University-funded financial aid or scholarships during your studies (eg. dormitory, books, living expenses or further tuition scholarships).

You should ensure that, before accepting a partial Koç University Offer of Admission and Scholarship Offer, you will be able to pay your remaining tuition each semester and cover your living expenses in full as an international student. If awarded a scholarship by Koç University you will be asked to sign a Scholarship Agreement.

Country specific scholarships

Please check the Scholarships section of our website to find out whether you could be eligible for a specific country-based scholarship.

We strongly encourage all international undergraduate applicants to also submit an application to the Turkish Scholarships program (except for Medicine and Nursing) as these are awarded for 100% tuition waivers and include dormitory accommodation, monthly stipend, flights and other benefits that are not available from Koç University’s own merit based or need-based scholarships for international students. More details are here.
