Pray for #Turkey, pray for the #World

Sur, Diyarbakır (gazetevatan.com)
V zadnjih mesecih se teroristični napadi v Turčiji kar vrstijo. Od julija 2015, ko se je zgodil samomorilski napad v pretežno kurdskem Suruçu, so oboroženi spopadi na vzhodu Turčije praktično stalnica. O spopadih med DHPK-C oziroma PKK-jem in turško vojsko tuji mediji poročajo le izjemoma, kot da se sploh nič ne dogaja. O tej ''nevidni'' vojni si več lahko preberete tukaj. Tudi turški mediji o tem skoraj ne poročajo. Turški mediji pogosto poročajo le o številkah padlih vojakov (t.i. şehit, mučenik), ki se borijo v Diyarbakırju in ostalih, pretežno kurdskih mestih na vzhodu in jugovzhodu Turčije.

Srečno 1395!

Nevruz, Diyarbakir (nationalturk.com)

Nowruz ali nevruz je praznik pomladi, ki ga v Turčiji praznuje predvsem kurdska manjšina. Za Kurde je nevruz eden izmed najpomembnejših praznikov, praznujejo pa ga od 18.- 21. Praznovanje doseže svoj vrhunec 21. marca, na dan pomladnega enakonočja. Veliko bolj kot v Turčiji, je ta dan pomemben v Iranu, saj 21. marca praznujejo novo leto. Po perzijsko, Norwuz pomeni ''novi dan''. Perzijci tako 20. ali 21. marca praznujejo novo leto in tudi začetek pomladi. Praznovanje v Iranu doseže svoj vrhunec prav v času solsticija, ni pomembno ali se to zgodi podnevi ali ponoči. 20. marca 2016 bodo tako praznovali novo leto 1395.

Study in Turkey


Scholarship of the Republic of Turkey

 UPDATE (FEBRUARY 2016)

THE APPLICATIONS FOR 2016/2017 WILL START AT THE END OF FEBRUARY.

In last years I benefited from different types of scholarship offered by Republic of Turkey. The Republic of Turkey every year offers different possibilities to obtain scholarship. All scholarship information can be obtained from the oficial page of Turkish scholarship, called Türkiye bursları

Every year there are some changes related to application period or type of scholarships in the scope of Turkiye Burslari. One of the most important changes this year (2015) is the Araştırma burs programı (Research Scholarship Programme) and the Sanat ve Spor Burs Programi (Art and Sport scholarship programme). The application for the Research Scholarships is opened all over the year. The requirements are a bit different than for other scholarships, for example the candidate must find and be accepted at an university in Turkey, where he/she wants to conduct a research.

DON'T MISS ALSO STUDY IN TURKEY #2 and STUDY IN TURKEY #3
You are welcome to comment and sharte the posts!





I have experience with scholarship which covers summer course of Turkish (part of so called Yunus Emre Turkish Language Scholarship Programme) and graduate scholarship programme in the scope of Ibni Haldun Social Sciences Graduate Scholarship (for MA and phD. Apart from the mentioned programms, they offer also undergraduate scholarships, short term scholarships and research scholarship. You can get most informations and the important OFFICAL DATES and OFFICIAL APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS on the official page of Türkiye Scholarship /Burslari. Also there exists useful (official) Facebook page of Türkiye burslari.

In-Between

I would like to dedicated a few blog posts about the other part of Istanbul, Turkey. This topic is of course not limited to Turkey and it's one of the most debated topic in Europe (if not the whole World) in the last few months. It's actually the topic which should have been resolved months, if not years ago, however Europe and World turned a blind eye on it. I know, many things have been said, many opinions clashed and many times hathered spoke out of people. Since I live in Turkey and come often home, to Slovenia, I really cannot avoid thinking, if not speaking about the refugee crysis. Most of regugees come from Syria, however many of them also from other Middle Eastern countries. Many Europeans have ''newly discovered'' their nationalist ideas and are fighting against refugees, meanwhile the politicians still haven't decided what to do with thousands of people entering Europe in search of peace and better life.
