Research Awards

Research Awards

With support from the Vehbi Koç Foundation, KOÇ-KAM Research Awards Program was initiated in 2011 in order to encourage and promote gender-related research in Turkey and to raise awareness on gender issues. KOC-KAM allocates awards to selected outstanding research proposals for the completion of academic research in various disciplines focusing on gender-related issues in Turkey. An independent scientific panel evaluates the applications and selects research proposals that qualify for financial support. KOÇ-KAM is the only institution in Turkey that provides financial support specifically to gender-related research. The number of selected projects and the amount of awards vary according to the availability of awards and the scientific quality of the proposed research projects. The projects are evaluated on the basis of their unique contribution to gender studies.
