If I need a visa to attend, can you help in offering it?

Dear Ghalia, thanks for your interest. Unfortunately, we can not help in this matter as CILE is not located in Turkey. Maybe you could try to contact our local partner from Ibn Haldun University: Mr Enes Yalman enes . yalman (@) ihu . edu . tr.

Thanks and we look forward to welcoming you in Istanbul in sha Allah.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Do you have any scholarship to offer? I am sure there are a few people who wishes to attend but cannot afford the fees. I would appreciate if you could let us know about it, please.
Thank you
