2.15 Corporate Social Responsibility Activities

The Financial Support Program for Academic Studies, which has been in place since 2006 to support academic and/or policy-making conferences in the fields of economics and finance, along with other academic and policy-making studies organized in and outside the country, continued in 2018. In this scope, financial support was provided to 32 academic programs that had applied for it.

Founded by the contributions of the CBRT and the Bank of Greece after the 1999 earthquake, the Central Bank Derince Anatolian High School, which had opened its doors to students in the 2001-2002 academic year, had its 17th graduation ceremony on 25 May 2018. During the ceremony, the highest ranking students were awarded with plaques and various presents. The ceremony was attended by CBRT officials, along with provincial dignitaries and students’ families. Since the 2002, the CBRT has been awarding scholarships to graduates of this high school who have enrolled in a university and who satisfy specific criteria. As of 2018, the number of such scholarship recipients reached 104. Additionally, as a part of the financial assistance for educational purposes, the CBRT donated a photocopier, projection machine, air conditioner and various supplies for sports activities with a view to improving the quality of education.

In the context of corporate social responsibility activities, the CBRT donated 4,600 furniture items (desks, chairs, and computers) to 63 public institutions.
