(October applications are opened.)

Course fees are TL 200 for the Base Course, TL 200 for the Intensive Training: Social entrepreneurship and TL 500 for the Intensive Training: Social Investment. The fees include the training, teaching materials, refreshments, lunches as well as an invitation to one joint dinner each during the Base and Intensive Training.

A limited number of scholarships are available to social entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations and other professionals who cannot afford the full course fee. A scholarship committee will meet to review eligibility 6 weeks prior to the start of the course and periodically afterwards if additional sponsorship becomes available.

The course size for the Base Training is limited to 25 participants and to 15 participants each for both intensive trainings.

For the Intensive Training we furthermore encourage applications from those entrepreneurs who have previously successfully participated in a social entrepreneurship training, an accelerator program and/or have been selected or shortlisted in a competition (e.g. the Global Social Venture Competition at Koc University or the Young Social Entrepreneurship Award at Bilgi University).

For other participants no prior knowledge or preparations are required, even though an understanding of financing, investment and business basics and/or grant program management experience would be desirable. We particularly encourage those who are in the process or seek to develop a social investment product, review or design a social investment strategy to apply for scholarship opportunities for the Social Investment Module. 

Candidates for all course modules should apply online.

Trainings will be held in Turkish.
