Earthquake Bursary Fund Announcement
We are all shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible disaster in Türkiye. Very sadly, many people are reported to have been killed, injured, lost loved ones or have become homeless and displaced in very difficult and harsh circumstances.
There are 1704 ODTÜ students from the impacted area. Past earthquake disasters in Türkiye have taught us that the road ahead is a long, arduous one for these students. We must keep supporting them in the aftermath, as they recover, heal and rebuild their lives.
As an association, one of our missions is to help ODTÜ students and our future fellow alumni. So we have started a new Bursary Fund for those impacted students to support them for a year and OAAC pledges to match your donations up to the amount that will support 10 additional students.
We recognize that there are many of our members and friends who have lost someone, or know of others impacted. It is a difficult time and we stand with you. If you are thinking about what to do next, please help us spread the word.
