What is the Prudential Scholarship program?

Prudential Scholarship program fulfills its mission of “Cultural exchange” by bringing together international and Turkish students. Our program allows international students to become familiar with the Turkish way of life by attending universities, experiencing hospitable culture, and participating in touristic activities while earning their degree at an accredited higher institution. As a result, Turkish students also learn about foreign cultures and make lasting friendships with the international students attending universities.

We are partnering with Universities across Turkey to offer Prudential Scholarship program to international students. International students get an opportunity to study and earn their degree at Turkish universities while the universities benefit from foreign enrollment and cultural exchange for their Turkish students.

Am I eligible to apply?

If you will have completed your country’s pre-university education (equivalent to U.S. 12th Grade) before arriving on-campus for the fall semester, or if any of the following apply to you, you are eligible to apply to the scholarship program as a first-year applicant:

  • You are completing an internationally-recognized equivalent, such as the IB Diploma; or
  • You are applying from countries with school leaving qualifications based on the British educational model, and will have completed the A-level equivalent (neither O-levels nor (I)GCSE results will be sufficient for admission); or
  • You are currently enrolled in a foundation year program outside of the United States; or
  • Your highest degree earned by the time you plan to apply for the scholarship program is either a certificate or diploma.

Transfer applicants must first meet the high school requirements above. You are then eligible to apply as a transfer student if one of the following applies to you:

  • You are currently or have been enrolled as a degree-seeking* student at a college or university in the U.S. that is regionally accredited;
  • You are currently or have been enrolled as a degree-seeking student at a college or university outside the U.S. that is nationally recognized by the country's primary accrediting council/agency; or
  • You are currently or have been enrolled in a non-degree seeking program in the U.S. and will have completed 24 semester credits or more by the time you plan to enroll.

*A non-degree seeking student, sometimes referred to outside of the United States as a non- award/non-study student or auditor, refers to a student who is taking a course at a host university, but does not have the right to earn a degree at the host university. But credits could be earned which are transferrable.

Official results must be sent to our office from the high school or the examination board as soon as they are released.

The scholarships are awarded considering multiple criteria and subject to seats availability at a particular university.

3 + 1 program Canada

What is 3+1 program Canada?

International students enrolled in Bachelor’s degree program at our partner Turkish universities will have an opportunity to continue the university in their senior year (4th year of studies) in the Canadian province of Manitoba which makes them eligible for permanent residence status only after 6 months of employment after graduation from the university/college. Furthermore, students can request a 60% tuition refund from the provincial government of Manitoba if they agree to work and settle in that province..

If settling in Canada is something that excites you, then we need to plan your credits ahead of time in order to select the courses that will be fully credited upon transferring to a Canadian university/college. Our contracted universities/colleges also have an agreement in place to waive the TOEFL/IELTS requirements if you commit to an approved English course before the admission. A conditional acceptance will be issued contingent upon the completion of the English prep course.
