Speaking at the protocol ceremony, UU Rector Prof. Dr. Yusuf Ulcay announced that they will continue the project of granting scholarships to successful students they started last year in the new year. Rector Yusuf Ulcay said that they tried to implement this campaign in almost every part of the university in the 2016-2017 academic year; Our project received serious support from both local governments and companies. Our university is among the top 5 most preferred universities thanks to this project. One of every 4 students who preferred Uludağ University last year wrote our university in the first place as their choice. Our Civil Engineering Department was one of the departments that got the most share from this protocol. The percentage of successful students choosing the department has exceeded the past years. Our aim with this project was to attract students who passed the exam held by ÖSYM to Uludağ University. When we look at the data this year, we see that we have reached our target. We believe that the project will create a domino effect. Successful students will bring successful lecturers. The student will not be content with the given and will want more. At that time, we will be able to place the concept of the 3rd Generation University that we aimed at in Uludağ University. The protocol is not a need scholarship. Thanks to the protocol, the 5 most successful students who choose the civil engineering department of our university will be entitled to receive a scholarship.
