One of the aims of the ITU Maritime Faculty Graduates Social Assistance Foundation is to provide scholarship support to students and academicians in need. Accordingly, the Foundation has been carrying out studies for this purpose since its founding year in 1995. Since its inception, the institution has given scholarships to 10,044 people and held its 23rd Solidarity Night on May 05, 2018.

The Turkish Shipbuilders’ Association (GISBIR) was among the institutions that supported the night.
