Rona yırcalı Chairman of the Board of Trustees Distinguished members of TEV, TEV is a non-governmental organization which maintains the vision to build a platform where people can develop and apply their knowledge for the benefit of the society. TEV was established by 205 generous individuals and corporations with the leadership of the deceased Vehbi Koç in 4 May 1967, under the name of Turkish Education Facility. In accordance with Article 3 of Law No.903, it was renamed Turkish Education Foundation in July TEV, throughout its life of 45 years, has aimed to be the light of education for the youth, with an approach that embraces every segment of the society. TEV has not been a foundation of any one conviction, district, corporation or family. The sense of confidence this has fostered has exceeded the borders of our country. TEV has been carrying out partner scholarship programs with various foreign countries. One of the most significant features of TEV, which will live on forever as a legacy from our founders to us and from us to the new generations, is to realize and immortalize desires and ideals of many

Together with board of directors and board of trustees, we drew plans in order to make our dreams come true. With our Annual Report, we aim to provide extensive information on TEV and share with you what we have put into practice in We have a lot to do We will start working with love and we will end up again working collaboratively with love in order to contribute to a greater happiness and a wider eternity in order to be hope and education I commemorate all of our founders who have built our foundation on our unchanging principles and institutional insight and thank warmly all our benefactors, project partners, volunteers, old and new scholars, managers, workers and all the family members who provide full support and allocate their valuable time and resources to our Foundation. Dear members of TEV family, M. Yıldız Günay General Manager (CEO) To give from the heart is bliss on its own; to learn is another and to do the job you love, another Sharing and giving from the heart to support the ones in need while doing the job you love is again a great source of happiness. In its 45th year, TEV continues to work for education by bringing everyone together and guiding them in a ring of hope by touching each other s lives. This has been a year to be proud of. Donations from our supporters made it possible for us to construct TEV İfakat Yavuz Elementary and Secondary School in earthquake-devastated Van. We brought education to over 1700 students. In collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Turkcell, TEV launched Turkey s Money Box Project, an educational fundraising campaign. We brought houses to 200 teachers, dormitories to 100 students and scholarships to 100 students. Our girls hostel in Izmir became fully operational and we opened a new girls hostel in Trabzon which has become home to female students from numerous provinces. By adding a new destination country to overseas education opportunities with SINGA (Singapore) scholarships, we have also brought hope for doctorate students. At the Safiye Ayla- Zeki Müren Song Competitions we organize in order to perpetuate the names of our valuable benefactors, we met with young voices, and TEV has become the music itself. We got together at year end dinners; we carried out various organizations in our branches and TEVITOL by coming together with other branches of TEV. In the recent year, we have also made the opening of Orhan Çetin
10 18 TEV FAALİYET RAPORU 2012 TEV FAALİYET RAPORU I have served TEV with great commitment since its establishment. During these 45 years, TEV has provided 200,000 domestic scholarships and 1,441 overseas scholarships for postgraduate education. We have awarded 9,500 domestic scholarships and 121 overseas scholarships in the academic year alone. TEV is the only Non-Governmental Organization that has partnerships in 9 countries in the field of educational scholarships. TEV added the TEV SINGA PhD Scholarships to its overseas scholarships. It is generally hard to attain success in the first years of these programs however with our enthusiasm, we implemented our projects successfully. In this scholarship, the needs of 9 chosen scholars are funded by SINGA. The selection and orientation process was welcomed by Singapore and it was decided to increase the quota further. Today, education is a necessity for life. Güsel Bİlal Deputy General Managment Our foundation gives Outstanding Success Scholarships in its 40th year with the aim of supporting the leaders of the future. Students in the top 2000 ranking in University Placement Exams (LYS) have been the new children of TEV family; 216 students still receive their scholarships from this quota and the number of Outstanding Success Scholarships continues to increase in every academic year. TEV does not only give scholarships to students, but also gives provides social opportunities to improve themselves, such as internship positions, free English courses and technical visits. It can be clearly seen that the creation and perpetuation of civilizations, and scientific and cultural improvement comes only with the spread of awareness of education. Although governments attempt to give priority to educational services, the cost of a quality education has reached significantly high levels in our day and age. In fact, we had made this assessment in 1967 with the foresight of the deceased Vehbi Koç, and actualized it within the body of Turkish Education Foundation. It is important to remember that the development of a nation can only be achieved by increasing level of knowledge and culture. It becomes our principle to increase the scale of our services with the support of responsive philanthropists and scholars. TEV was established to promote Turkish National Education by providing support for prosperous students who are in need, strengthening the system they will receive education within, opening schools, dormitories and education centers and conducting research in field of education. As our founders remarked 45 years ago, alleviating the deprivations in our country is possible only by strengthening education alongside industrialization. Everyone contributing in accordance with their abilities to support education is incredibly crucial at times when government sources are lacking. I would like to state that I am proud of sustaining this belief for 45 years.

Hardship Scholarships TEV provides scholarships to technical and industrial vocational high schools, universities, higher education and doctorate students who are devoted to the principles and reforms of Atatürk and successful, but in need of financial support. In the first year of TEV s establishment, the number of beneficiaries was 119. Today this figure has reached to Overall, TEV supports scholars, merely in the academic year , 2850 of which are vocational high schools, 6339 for university, 95 for masters and doctorate and 216 students for outstanding success. Apart from the students chosen by teaching institutions, students who are disabled, who were raised in orphanage and whose families are damaged during natural disasters are awarded by higher education scholarships. After the earthquake in Marmara in the late 1990s, 4041 students benefited from TEV s scholarships. In the following years, with the earthquakes in Afyon (2000), Bingöl (2003) and Van (2011), TEV respectively provided 1000, 100 and 400 scholarships to the earthquake victims. With the ones who have succeeded, TEV still sustains their scholarships with the frame of TEV Domestic Scholarship Organization. Students benefıt from our scholarships if they succeed until the end of the year. Yet, scholarships are terminated if students do not succeed or do not fit into TEV s criteria.
