Each scholarship has its own eligibility criteria. Scholarship rates vary according to these criteria and may at times exceed 100% of the school's tuition fee (covering all educational costs).
Academic Merit Scholarship
Academic merit scholarship is awarded to students who have achieved the highest score in the high school admission examination for the incoming prep students and those who have achieved the highest GPA in the upper grade levels.
At Tarsus American College, Academic Merit Scholarship is offered in two stages: during admissions and in upper grade levels.
Merit Scholarship on Admission: It is a merit scholarship awarded to students who will be start the preparatory year based on their LGS (high school admissions exam) results. It covers the entire tuition fee (100%) for 5 years. 100% merit scholarship is awarded to the top eight students with highest scores who enroll in TAC during the first registration period according to the calendar in the Private Schools Enrolment Guide. This scholarship is also valid in the upper grade levels, in order to continue, students must pass their classes and not receive disciplinary punishment. Students who are not among the first 8 students but have high scores are also awarded partial achievement scholarships at different rates, if the family needs it.
SEV Merit Scholarship: It is awarded to the students of SEV middle schools who graduate in the top five in their class when they enroll in Tarsus American College in July with their LGS result. The scholarship covers 35% of the tuition fee for the prep year. The scholarship continues for one year.
