The objective of the Koç University Summer Professional Development Program is to support full-time lecturers and instructors working at Koç University to participate in international programs that will support their professional development by visiting international universities and/or participating in training programs.

Applicants are expected to make arrangements for the summer visit and to obtain an invitation from the University in question. Koç University provides a stipend for a 4-week visit and a round-trip economy class airfare.

Full-time lecturers and instructors interested in participating in this program should first discuss their possible visits with their deans/directors and get their approval, then they should submit their application to the VPAA Office by the end of January.
