The Support is Growing    

The number of students gaining scholarship from The Young of Karşıyaka Project that was begun by the Karşıyaka Municipality and has become one of the most important social responsibility project of Turkey in a short time has reached to 700 in three years. The growing of the support supplied from especially the buildings and sites, taxi and collective taxi drivers, the civil society organizations, the tradesmen, headmen, council members, municipal employees and the sensitive citizens each passing day created happiness. New period registrations for the university students who want to benefit from The Young of Karşıyaka Project also in the new period will begin on 3 September. The supports of the sensitive citizens will turn to the university students as scholarship also in education season of 2018-2019.  The students who want to gain scholarship will be able to take necessary documents from project unit on 7th floor of municipality building.

“It Is Beautiful But It Isn’t Enough”  

Karşıyaka Mayor Hüseyin Mutlu Akpınar said: “The duty of municipalities isn’t only making road and pavement. Our most important project is giving scholarship to the needer university students with social solidarity. We have given scholarship to our about 700 students until today. We are grateful to our donators for this but it isn’t enough. If we have more supporters, we will be able to give scholarship to tens of our students also in the new period. We are struggling for this. Everyone who says ‘I’m from Karşıyaka’ should put a brick upon this wall.”
