A maximum of 25 researchers will be supported per year. The applications are evaluated in two phases.
Application documents are checked during a preliminary assessment. Applications which do not fulfil the requirements or are lacking any requested documents, missing documentation in the requested format or are not submitted within the application period, or submitted by fax or e-mail will be returned without being subjected to scientific evaluation.
Evaluation is based solely on documents uploaded to the application system. For this reason, the documentation for each requirement must be uploaded to the system in clear and determined context. (Documents which only contain links of web pages will not be considered.)
The results of the evaluation are determined by Group Executive Committee and submitted to the Presidency. The applications which will be supported and the amount of the support will be finalized by the approval of the TÜBİTAK Presidency and TWAS.
