Continuation and Termination of the Scholarship

Prior to applying, it is crucial to familiarize yourself with the scholarship's eligibility requirements and termination conditions. Here are some important factors to consider:

  • Consistency of declared information
  • Keeping your eligibility information up to date
  • Adherence to disciplinary rules and compliance with national and international policies and procedures
  • Successful completion of the academic year and prevention of repetition
  • Notification of citizenship or status changes
  • Absence of intervals exceeding three months, such as continuous enrollment, military service, family reasons, prolonged absence, or leaving the country
  • Receiving sponsorship or scholarships from other consortia, particularly ESPS

Other Important Considerations

  • Applicants who have received or are currently receiving a scholarship from the ESPS Project or another project under the same fund are not eligible for the EU Scholarship. This policy ensures fair distribution and support to students in need. In this context, the student's evaluation is based on the project for which they initially applied.
  • All eligible students can apply for either university tuition or stıpend (pocket money), but only one type of scholarship can be awarded per applicant.
  • By submitting your application, you confirm the accuracy of the provided information. It is crucial to instantly update your personal information on the platform in case of any changes. This ensures the validity and integrity of your application throughout the selection process.
  • After receiving the scholarship award, you will be required to provide a EURO bank account for funds transfer.
