Help Female Students at Istanbul Technical University succeed in their studies, projects and research.
We are a US based, NY State registered charitable non-profit alumni association formed by the ITU Alumni actively working in the USA and Canada. Currently, female students at ITU are extremely affected by the deepening economic crisis and the declining value of the Turkish Lira. These are exceptional times causing some female students to even interrupt their studies.
As an emergency response, we are forming funds to help students overcome these extreme financial difficulties. The funds will be provided to students in cooperation with the central alumni organization of the ITU Mezunlari Dernegi office in Istanbul.
We have great examples of successful Turkish female scientists, scholars and technical leaders who have designed, published and taught across the world. Prof. Feryal Özel is one of the many examples. As an astrophysicist, she leads the Black Hole Event Horizon Telescope Program of NASA.
