Bilkent MATH Students Win Awards
Two students, Orhan Kara (Ph.D student), and Caner Koca (MATH/IV), received the Orhan Alisbah Fellowship award on October 11, at the Department of Mathematics award ceremony.
The Orhan Alisbah Fellowship is conferred in memory of Prof. Orhan Alisbah (1910-1989), one of the best known mathematicians in Turkey.
Every year since 1998, Prof. Bilsel Alisbah, son of Orhan Alisbah and currently a faculty member at MAN, has awarded fellowships to students in the department of Mathematics at Bilkent.
This fellowship ensures that the memory of Prof. Alisbah is not forgotten, continuing to serve instead as an exemplary role model for young mathematicians.
