The Sena Eken Schieber Economics Award is supported by the Eken-Schieber Scholarship Fund at Turkish Philanthropy Funds. The fund was established by Sena’s husband George Schieber to celebrate Sena Eken Schieber’s life, and continue her legacy as a pioneering international civil servant, Turkish Government official, economist, and a role model for many women. Sena was not only a highly competent, hard-working, and successful professional, but also a wonderful wife, a caring and dedicated sister, aunt, family member, friend, and mentor. She was known as an inspirational leader who lived life to the fullest. The scholarship supports young women from Turkey from low-income families to pursue graduate degrees in economics in the United States. Learn about the 2022 application process.
