[Info Scholarship] Turkish Government Scholarship 2020 for S1, S2 and S3 Fully Funded

Turkey 2020 scholarships already opened! Every year, the Turkish Government offers Türkiye Scholarships, a full scholarship for international applicants (including Indonesia) to continue their undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate studies at universities in Turkey. This scholarship is available for various majors and fields of study. Of course, this opportunity is a pity to pass up.

In this scholarship, applicants do not need to submit a separate registration at the destination university. By using the scholarship online registration form, applicants can also apply directly to the university of interest. So when applicants are declared to get scholarships, they will automatically be accepted at universities in Turkey.

The lecture process mostly uses Turkish. But there are also study programs that use English, French or Arabic. We recommend that before applying for a scholarship, applicants must pay attention to what language of instruction will be used in the study program to be applied for. In addition, applicants will also get a free Turkish language course for one year before lecturing which will certainly help the lecture process later.

Program Duration:

  1. Undergraduate Program (Undergraduate Program): 4 to 6 years (depending on the duration of each study program) + 1 year Turkish language course
  2. Master’s Program: 2 years + 1 year Turkish language course
  3. S3 Program (PhD Program): 4 years + 1 year Turkish language course
