The İbni Sina Medical Sciences Scholarship program
This scholarship is aimed at both undergraduate and postgraduates who are looking to study in the fields of medicine. This may include dentistry, nursing, pharmaceutics or veterinary medicine. Graduates must provide the international equivalent to the Turkish ALES (Academic Staff and Graduate Education Test conducted by ÖSYM). Graduates interested in applying for this scholarship may be looking to study at Hacettepe or Koc universities. 

Bilkent-05
Bilkent University is based in the thriving Turkish capital Ankara

The Islamic Theology Scholarship Programme   
Graduates looking to study in the fields of religious studies may be interested in the Islamic Theology Scholarship Programme. Candidates must have at least 70% successes over their graduation grade. Those looking to do an MA or PhD in the field of religious studies may be interested in studying at Cukurova University where there are available courses such as the Basic Islamic Studies course.
One thing to point out is that although the scholarship appears to be applicable to any religious studies course, you may want to take note of the fact that it is not very common to find many religious studies courses in Turkey which are covering other religions apart from Islam.

The Support Scholarship Program
This scholarship is rather different from those mentioned above. One main difference is that the Support Scholarship is designed for students who are already studying in a university in Turkey on their own expenses, and who need economic support. This scholarship is also available through the Türkiye Burslari Scholarships website.
