Sabanci University, which is a non-profit, foundation university, provides merit-based scholarships to MBA students including international applicants.  Number of students receiving scholarships may change depending on the individual amounts. All scholarship requests should be submitted with the application documents during online application. Scholarship decisions are made after the documents in the application package are reviewed and the interview of the candidate is completed.  Although GMAT or GRE score is one of the primary criteria used in scholarship decisions, it is by no means the only criterion.
