Each year, a "University Admission Scholarship" is granted to those students with outstanding performances in that year's Higher Education Institutions Exam, along with the grants provided to "Graduates of High Schools in Provinces with a Priority in Development" and "Disabled Students" with outstanding performance in the same Examination. Additionally, since the start of the 2009-2010 academic year, the “Sabancı Foundation-Vista Scholarship” has been put into practice through the grants of the Vista Tourism and Travel Agency. “Other Scholarships” by conditional donations are determined by the donors.
More than 48.000 students have benefited from the scholarships provided by Sabancı Foundation since its establishment in 1974. Each year 400 students start to benefit from the grants. Scholarships are given to nearly 1.500 students in total each year.
