Turkish students have won 23 medals in various elements of science at the International Science Olympics.

Representing the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) the students received a total of six gold medals, ten silver medals, and seven bronze medals to complete a successful Science Olympics for Turkey.

The rewards for students who receive a gold medal in the Olympics is 10,000 Turkish Lira, those who receive a silver medal get 8,000 TL, and those who receive a bronze medal take home 6,000 TL. The students are also given the opportunity to gain entry to any undergraduate private university program without taking the required LYS exam. Students who do not gain medals at the Science Olympics benefit from extra points in the LYS according to the points they receive at the Olympics. The Turkish government also awards different scholarships to participants of the Science Olympics.

Turkey recently announced new reforms to the education system in Turkey to modernise the learning environment for students. Turkey is investing a lot of money in the youth of Turkey and it seems to be paying off. Education in Turkey is stronger than ever and is only going to improve even more.
