Tanzania: Turkey Envoy Urges Tanzanians to Grab Scholarship Opportunities

TURKEY’S Ambassador to Tanzania Dr Mehmet Gulluoglu has encouraged more young talents in Tanzania to apply for the 2022 Turkish scholarships before the application window closes in the next ten days.

Dr Gulluoolu made the call in Dar es Salaam yesterday while briefing the media on the scholarships, pointing out that over the years there has been slowness for eligible candidates to apply for the master and PHD scholarships.

“I encourage more young Tanzanian talents to apply for the scholarships, so as to aid the country’s growing human resource demand in the various fields.” “The applicants should demonstrate the ability to express themselves and show their enthusiasm for their studies,” said Dr Gulluoglu .

He pointed out that the application window opened on January 10 with only a few days remaining for Turkey government scholarships to close. According to him, up to 40 successful applicants will be selected to join the various universities in Turkey in the academic year which begins in September.

Taking into account the large Tanzanian population and existing labor market demand, the Ambassador said he was persuading the universities in Turkey to avail more chances for Tanzanian students, who want to study in the country.

“Currently, there are 404 university students from Tanzania taking various fields of studies in Turkey, including in cities like Istanbul, Ankara and many others,” noted the Ambassador.

He pointed out that candidates have a room to apply for the various courses including technical studies, business administration, engineering, science, medicine programs and social science fields.
