Since November 2004, all the gratuitous scholarships are given by Credit and Hostels Institution (KYK). The quota allocated to our university by KYK differs from year to year as the allocations are based on the number of student contingents at the faculties and vocational colleges. After the quotas have been evaluated by the Faculty and Vocational College Scholarship Commission, the results are relayed to the Credit and Hostels Institution by the Rectorship. As a result of investigations of the KYK, those students whose declarations were accurate are allocated a scholarship, those that have not qualified for a scholarship are approved for a loan. Scholarship results are announced every year in December on the Credit and Hostels Institution Web page. The scholarship lasts a duration of 12 months, and may continue until the end of the educational period if the students doesn’t have any penalties or does not pass his/her courses due to absenteeism as stated in Erciyes University Scholarships Directives’ relevant articles .
