Pegasus and TEV, Signed for 1,000 Female Students for University Scholarship

Pegasus Airlines, which decided to support the education of 1,000 female students in the 100th anniversary of the Republic by providing university scholarships in cooperation with the Turkish Education Foundation (TEV), officially launched the "Pegasus Every Step to the Future Scholarship Fund" project. Pegasus Airlines CEO Güliz Öztürk and TEV General Manager Banu Taşkın came together for the signing ceremony of the project at Pegasus Airlines Headquarters on Tuesday, 20 February 2024. Within the scope of the "Pegasus Every Step to the Future Scholarship Fund" project, 25% of the scholarships, which will start in the 2023-2024 academic year and continue until the students complete their university education, will be awarded to scholarship recipients from cities affected by the earthquake disaster in February 2023.

In addition to the scholarships provided within the scope of the "Pegasus Every Step to the Future Scholarship Fund", scholarship recipients are also provided with additional opportunities such as mentoring support from Pegasus managers, internship opportunities within the company, introduction of different business areas in the aviation sector by Pegasus leaders, and participation in online/offline sessions and seminars held under the umbrella of women in aviation.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Güliz Öztürk, CEO of Pegasus Airlines, said: "As Pegasus Airlines, we have been carrying out many activities for years with our belief in gender balance. Now, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of our Republic, we are supporting the education of 1,000 female university students in cooperation with the Turkish Education Foundation. We are proud and happy to be the institution that supports the highest number of scholarship students at a single time in the history of TEV with this support, which means a great deal to us, knowing that our young girls will keep the Republic alive forever. In order to never lose the spirit of solidarity and to be able to support these regions after the earthquake disaster that struck our country in February 2023, we have decided that 25% of our scholarship recipients come from earthquake-affected provinces. We will continue to support young people on their way to a bright future and work with all our strength for our country."

Drawing attention to the importance of equal opportunity in quality education, Banu Taşkın, General Manager of the Turkish Education Foundation (TEV), said: "It is of great importance to make quality education, which is the fundamental right of every individual, accessible to everyone regardless of gender. As the Turkish Education Foundation, we have been endeavouring to ensure that our young people benefit from equal opportunities in education with the activities we have been carrying out for 56 years, and we support our students in their educational journey.

We continue our efforts to create value in this field based on the principles of Quality Education and Gender Equality, which are sustainable development goals. In this journey, the contributions provided by valuable education-friendly organisations such as Pegasus Airlines are both an example for the society and a hope for the future. With the work we have implemented with Pegasus, we go beyond providing financial support to our female scholarship recipients and offer them multifaceted support that will inspire and guide them. These contributions are very valuable for our female students and disaster victims to realise their potential on the road to their dreams.  We would like to extend our endless thanks to Pegasus Airlines for their support to 1,000 female university students who will be the bright face of our country in the 100th year of our Republic."
