Pre-selection process:

The pre-selection process via the network of local partners remains unchanged. The Foundation will rely on partners as much as ever to identify candidates. Therefore, interested students should frist contact local coordinator at their institutions and carry out pre-selection interview.


Renault Foundation intends to be more focused on supporting candidates with limited financial resources. RF shall be very vigilant therefore regarding the eligibility conditions for awarding scholarships, and each candidate's family context will be systematically considered (family makeup, income, etc.). This criteria will take precedence for the award of the scholarship.  

Social and income criteria will be included in the selection process. RF will ask to some candidates’  parents wage slip or income proof to support only candidates that really need the Renault grant or financial aid.

Interested METU students and alumni should consult with Dr. Ibrahim Yorgun from International Cooperations Office for an initial application process/interview by paying a visit to the office during office hours (weekdays 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00). Please ask for an appointment by telephone or e-mail. Pre-selection of the candidates will be done by October 18, 2019 latest. No appointment will be given or interview will be done after this date. Therefore, please ask for an appointment at your earliest convenience.
