Undergraduate Academic Merit Scholarships are scholarships awarded to eligible undergraduate students with academic distinction. The scopes, quotas and requirements of undergraduate academic merit scholarships are reviewed by the Board of Trustees each academic year.

Academic merit scholarships are awarded to the top three freshman, sophomore and junior students in a faculty/school based on the annual academic evaluations conducted at the end of the spring semester of the relevant academic year.
Scope of Scholarships:
Scholarships are awarded in the form of 25 percent tuition waivers. The scope of scholarships to be awarded the following year is revised by the Board of Trustees in the month of January every year.
Eligible students for academic merit scholarships are determined by the Student Services Director’s Office based on the results of the academic evaluations to be conducted at the end of the Spring semester. Scholarships take effect pursuant to the approval of Rector.
Students who satisfy the aforementioned eligibility requirements are listed by their faculty/school and years. In each list, students are ranked based on their CGPA from highest to lowest. In case the grade point averages are the same, the student who earned more credits is ranked higher.
