What we have achieved

Turkish Education Foundation (TEV)

  • TEV is one of the largest and most established non-profit organizations in Turkey, enabling better educational opportunities for underprivileged students by providing financial support.
  • TEV provides scholarships to ~7,000 students each year for university, M.Sc and PhD studies both domestic and abroad, with over 250,000 alumni since its inception in 1967.

The Challenge

The Solution

  • One of TEV’s biggest challenges has always been to provide a close connection with their scholars and high-calibre alumni which have been distributed all around the world.
  • TEV tried mentoring programs in the past but they lacked the key know-how and resources to manage programs efficiently given their scale.
  • Therefore, they had to discontinue their mentoring programs and miss out on the opportunity to establish synergies between their students, alumni and organization.
  • Mentorink Online Mentoring Platform has brought together thousands of TEV scholars and alumni from more than 20 countries all over the world since the program started in 2016.
  • Mentorink has facilitated more than 1,500 mentor-mentee match-ups so far within the TEV community enabling many success stories.
  • Alumni members report that they now feel much closer to and engaged with TEV, giving way to further collaboration and fund-raising opportunities.
  • TEV is now opening up this program to its corporate partners to enable further mentoring and fund-raising opportunities.
