Substantial Issues About Mevlana Projects

1.The most important difference among Mevlana Projects and other scientific projects is Mevlana Projects are only supporting round trip mobility costs. The main factor of that program is to support round trip costs and accommodation costs while studying, in order to provide opportunity to institutions that have scientific compotence and hardware.
2.As in other scientific projects an application form that is including both detailed project process and concluding must be filled in Mevlana projects. And at the end of the projects there must be beneficial scientific outputs.
3.Projects that just including academic staff mobility have little chance in selecting process. It is suggested that projects should be planned including mutual mobility of academic staff and student.
4.Projects are carried out with nearly all world countries.Clickto see the Project Countries List.
5.Projects can be done about the subject titles that determined by HEI of Turkey. Click to see related HEI Decision and Project Subject Titles
6.In order to do Project we must have Mevlane Exchange Program Protocol with abroad university. If there is not any agreement between our university and the university that you want to do Project, get in contact with Office of International Affairs in order to initiate agreement process.

Agreement Process is as in the below;
-Office of International Affairs send ‘’Recognition Form’’ about the abroad university to the HEI, if it is identified or not by HEI of Turkey.
-Filling up Mevlane Exchange Program Protocol by institutions which will make agreement(Agreement List, Institutionl Codes / List).
-Completing of the signing process by Office of International Affairs.

The Process related with Project-Based Mevlane Exchange Program

1.Identification of Project subject and partner by the institution which will do Project and completing of the agreement process if there is no agreement before.
2. Filling up Project Form that also include partner institution’s information.
3.If there is any other support for the Project, it is necessary to indicate add documents to the Project Form.
4.The filled documents are sent to the HEI of Turkey by Office of International Affairs
5.Projects are evaluated by HEI if they can be supported or not

Issues related with Project Budjects
Project budgets are defined by HEI for each project’s itself. In addition to this, issues related with budget and payment are as in the below;
-A payment will be made to the mobility students who are studying at bachelor’s degree which will not exceed the threefold of montly tuition established for students in Law No 5102.
– A payment will be made to the academic staff which will not exceed the upper limit established in the ‘ The Decision regarding Daily Expenses while Abroad ’ and confirmed by the Decision of Council of Ministers in the relevant year according to the 34th item of the Travel Expense Law No 6245.
-The budgets for machinery and equipment will be evaluated separately by HEI and no payment wil be made to cover the cost of these items. But if there is any other cost item it must be indicated in the Project Proposal Application Form.
