About the Turkish Cypriot Government Scholarships

The Turkish Cypriot Government Scholarships is a scholarship programme that has branched off from the OIC Educational Exchange Programme. Based in the region of Northern Cyprus, Turkey, the scholarship is fully backed up by the Government of Turkey and Cyprus Government. As of now, the scholarship programme is available for students who are undergoing through their Undergraduate Education (10 semesters), Graduate Education (4 semesters), and PhD Education (8 semesters.)

It is worth noting that the scholarship will only be covering for the fall and spring semesters during the entire duration of the candidate’s usual period of study. As for the departments, the Turkish Cypriot Government Scholarships caters to all academic fields that are provided by their partnering universities, which are Cyprus International University, Girne American University, and Final International University. However, the scholarship programme does not cater to candidates who are planning to pursue a degree in Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy.

As all of the university courses will be taught in English, all future candidates are expected to show high fluency in both written and spoken English. For another option, you can also show proof by enrolling in an English Prepratory School based in either of the three universities they are enrolled into. However, should they plan to go to one of these English Prepratory Schools, they must only be enrolled within a period of one year and no more than that.
