In line with the objective of bringing the Turkish Cypriot community closer to the European Union (EU), since 2007, the EU Scholarship Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community has provided to more than 2000 Turkish Cypriots with more than €38 million worth of scholarships to study and train in the European Union.
As of June 2022, the EU Scholarship Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community is being implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
The EU Scholarship Programme has two major objectives:
To promote social ties between the TCc and the European Union which includes direct ties, knowledge and understanding of the European Union, its values and cultural diversity;
To boost economic development in the TCc, especially by helping to overcome the gap between the skills of the work force and those needed by employers.
