"Bir Isik da Siz Yakin"

Support University Students A Project of Cagdas Yasami Destekleme Dernegi (CYDD)

The cost including all fees to send a university girl to school is $950.00

CYDD aims to support university students to continue with their university education with the BİR IŞIK DA SİZ YAKIN project.

Among Turkish youth of 18-24 years, 44.3% cannot continue with higher education; this rate is 14.4% in the European Union. The ratio of university graduates to Turkey's population is 14.7 whereas in European Union, it is 40. Turkey ranks the last in female university graduates (7.1%.) among OECD countries.

We have so far given, with the help of individual and corporate donors, 85,718 college scholarship and aim to take it to 100,000 in the near future.

By 2013 we had 20,000 university students (12,000 girls and 8,000 boys) who have graduated with CYDD scholarships. In 2013 we have 1250 new university students (720 girls and 530 boys ) receiving scholarships.
