Turkish Educational Foundation has commenced a dormitory project particularly for girl students in order to meet their need for a modern, safe and comfortable housing while moving to big cities for their university studies. For that purpose, two dormitories for girl students have been opened in Izmir-Balçova and Trabzon.

There are two ways to apply for housing at the dormitories:

  • Paid accommodation: Students pay their share to stay in these dormitories, which offer healthy and safe conditions to work and to accommodate. (There is no time constrain for these kind of applications. The same application form can be used to apply at the directorate of dormitories.)
  • Scholarships for Lodging: Successful students, who need financial support, can apply for an accommodation in the dormitories with a scholarship (in other words, without making any payments to the dormitory), if they have the qualifications to apply for such a program.

Applications for the dormitory scholarship have started.
