The Department of Mathematics has a long tradition of honoring outstanding undergraduate and graduate mathematics students through the annual Orhan Alisbah Mathematics Awards, supported by the generous contributions of the Alisbah family.Three students, Uğur Aydın (MATH/MA), Alper Balcı (MATH/ MA) and Fehmi Ekin Giritlioğlu (MATH/IV), received this year’s Orhan Alisbah Fellowships at a ceremony that took place via Zoom on December 22. This year marks the 24th time that the awards have been presented.

The fellowships are conferred annually in memory of Prof. Orhan Alisbah (1910–1989), one of Turkey’s best-known mathematicians, and his son Bilsel Alisbah (1937–2017), former lecturer at Bilkent University. The award helps keep alive the memory of Prof. Orhan Alisbah, so that he may continue to serve as an exemplary role model for young mathematicians.
