Three students, Ömer Faruk Tekin (MATH/IV), Cihan Bahran (MATH/M.S.) and Serkan Sakar (MATH/M.S.), received this year's Orhan Alisbah Fellowships at a Department of Mathematics award ceremony on Thursday, October 20.

The fellowship is conferred in memory of Prof. Orhan Alisbah (1910-1989), one of Turkey's best-known mathematicians. Since 1998, his son, Prof. Bilsel Alisbah, has awarded fellowships to Bilkent University Department of Mathematics students each year. This fellowship helps keep alive the memory of Prof. Orhan Alisbah, so that he continues to serve as an exemplary role model for young mathematicians.
