Prof. Dr. Orhan Karacadağ Awards for Scientific Achievement have been established through a generous donation in March 2007 from Türkan Karacadağ and Şükran Karacadağ, loving sisters of Prof. Orhan Karacadağ, in his memory. Professor Orhan Karacadağ is the father of Sinan Karacadağ, who passed away in 1999 when he was a student in the Faculty of Business Administration at Bilkent University during the 1998-1999 academic year. Professor Orhan Karacadağ Award for Scientific Achievement complements Sinan Karacadağ Scholarship Fund (for undergraduate students) which was established in June 2000 for the lasting memory of Sinan.
