Abstract

Objective: Turkey's Council of Higher Education (CoHE) has started a funding program (CoHE 100/2000 Scholarship Program) since the Spring semester of 2017 to support selected PhD students throughout Turkey. However, this funding program has some fundamental contradictions with the regulations of both Dokuz Eylul University Graduate School of Health Sciences (DEU-GSHS) and the requirements of ORPHEUS (Organization of Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System) label awarded to DEU-GSHS in 2015. Consequently, the contradictions create a relatively stressful PhD process for these selected students. The aim of this study was to understand DEU-GSHS CoHE 100/2000 scholarship holders' opinions and expectations, as well as the conflicts on regulations they come across during their studies.
