Onur Çekmegil Scholarship

With his kind, loving, positive, helpful and hardworking character, Onur has a special place in the minds and hearts of everyone who’s met him during his lifetime. 

We’ve started this scholarship fund as his family and friends to commemorate our dear friend by supporting 10 university students -who pursue degrees in law, engineering and medicine- every year.
