My name is Saima Rashid and I am a YTB Student in Turkey. Back in 2017, I got introduced to the Kashmir Guidance Group.The KG had done enough research to guide students about; how to apply for YTB, which documents are needed to apply, how to write SOP’s and how to prepare for interview once you are selected in the first round! Everything was mentioned in the group and sometimes when the internet connections would be bad in Kashmir, the KG would personally help with proceeding with the requirements of the application. The KG were so committed in this work that it never happened that we would call and they wouldn’t attend, they were always a text away. Even when I landed in Turkey for the first time, the KG received me at the airport, got me food and made sure that I reach my destination which was Konya. I would really like to extend my thanks to the Kashmir Guidance group for guiding us not only for YTB scholarships but for other scholarships as well. This group has been a true guide and the huge credit for I being in Turkey today goes to them. Behind every successful person lies a true mentorship. Even the requirements for visa were mentioned too!
I am enrolled in a Master’s program at Marmara University in Istanbul. I am thankful for the selfless help and guidance on part of Kashmir Guidance that was extended at the time of my application. Their gesture of receiving us at the airport with a smile and food after a long journey still is vivid in my mind. I hope they continue the good work, and others support them in their endeavors in whatever way possible.

Success is always a matter of choice and for me it’s not getting out of the best but getting out of the desired. Having done my bachelor’s in mass communication and journalism I always had dreams of doing something different and something big for my higher studies. Even after getting admission in KU for my masters and having got selected for every university I applied for, I was still not impressed by what I was doing. I joined Kashmir Guidance in 2017 and since then I came to know about lot of educational opportunities and scholarships in various countries especially Europe, the U.S, Middle East and Australia including the Türkiye Bursları, that I am a beneficiary of. Kashmir Guidance is a non-profit organization which works duly in the interests of Kashmiri Youth, to educate and inform them about the various opportunities throughout the world. Here at Kashmir Guidance, we not only inform but motivate and provide a helping hand to every deserving and meritorious Kashmiri Students. I am personally thankful to team Kashmir Guidance that always guides/guided me through the process of different opportunities that I might have missed out. Today I am writing this note from Turkey and I have my dream come true. Maybe this was the moment that I had been talking about, something that brought change in my career prospectives. Türkiye Bursları is a great opportunity to pursue higher education in a multi-cultural environment and accessibility to almost everything of the good lot.

My name is Rizwan Uz zaman Wani. I am a YTB student pursuing Ph.D. in Computer Science &Engineering at Ege University Izmir Turkey. After completing my Masters, I was wondering to continue my research. Those days I came to know about Kashmir Guidance. Their I came to know about the various Scholarships in foreign countries. Kashmir Guidance members helped me out from the Application process of Turkiye burslari till I joined the University in Turkey. Not only this, Kashmir Guidance is providing proper Research counseling by inviting the various Researchers and Scientists of Kashmir who are briefing about the various Research Techniques. It is highly appreciable for all the team members of Kashmir Guidance who are providing their precious time to Guide all of us on the Right track. Thank you all and May Allah bless you with prosperity & success and you all achieve every goal in life.
In 2017, I was selected in UG in a university based in Istanbul Turkey. It was going to be a totally new experience for me but the major immediate challenge was how can I reach to my university after arriving at Istanbul. I didn’t know the Turkish language, I didn’t knew anyone there.
I was thinking about these things, someone introduced me to Kashmir Guidance, whose coordinator were also pursuing their education in Istanbul. I contacted with them and they assured me all help. It was KG who received me at the airport. and took me to the address that I had to reach. They did everything for me and made me feel comfortable. Without their help, it would have been very difficult for me to reach my destination.
A million thanks to Kashmir Guidance.

I want to share my appreciation to KG for your support, motivation and guidance that helped many students including me to achieve their long desire for studying master’s and PhD programs on scholarships in abroad. KG is working selflessly for the welfare of the local students of Kashmir. After completion of my B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering from University of Kashmir, I had a long desire to go for higher studies in abroad. I am thankful to KG team for sharing valuable information including how to make a good application, write effective sops and how to excel in scholarship interviews. By the grace of almighty Allah and with the efforts of KG, I came to know about various scholarships being offered around the world. Finally, I was offered TIGP fellowship to study in National Tsinghua University Taiwan, received admission offers in engineering from various French universities like Ecole polytechnic, Paris Saclay university, Ecole centrale de Lyon and got nomination from Turkiye Burslari. At the end, I opted to study Masters in Budapest University of Technology and economics through Stipendium Hungaricum. It is a great opportunity to study in the heart of Europe and I wish KG to inspire more students to apply these international programs.

As soon as I won the Türkiye bursları scholarship, I was filled with joy and anxiety at the same time. I was anxious because, I didn’t know what to do next, how to do it and where to do it.
At that time, I came to know about KG. They helped me on each and every step all the way until I got my admission in KTÜ without charging me a single penny. During that period, they constantly updated me about any new developments like document requirements, document attestation, visa application etc.
For this, I will be eternally grateful to them.
