ARIT FELLOWSHIPS IN THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES IN TURKEY, 2018-2019
THE FELLOWSHIPS: The American Research Institute in Turkey is pleased to offer ARIT fellowships for research in Turkey for the 2018-2019 year. Grants for tenures up to one academic year will be considered; applications for projects of shorter duration are also supported. ARIT offers research and study facilities as well as connections with colleagues, institutions, and authorities through its branch centers in Istanbul and Ankara.
ELIGIBILITY: Scholars and advanced graduate students engaged in research on ancient, medieval, or modern times in Turkey, in any field of the humanities and social sciences, are eligible to apply. Student applicants must have fulfilled all requirements for the doctorate except the dissertation by June 2018, and before beginning any ARIT-sponsored research. Non-U.S. applicants who reside in the U.S. or Canada are expected to maintain an affiliation with an educational institution in the U.S. or Canada. Scholars who have completed their formal training may also apply for ARIT fellowships sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. For questions of eligibility, please check with the ARIT office in Philadelphia.
Researchers who wish to work with collections and some libraries housed in Turkish museums, however, should make their applications through the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, General Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Museums. If the material they wish to study is part of an excavation or survey, researchers must submit a letter with their application that is signed by the project director giving permission to carry out the research. The research permit application regulations and format for researchers are posted on the ARIT research permit page. ARIT may withhold payment of fellowship stipends if official research permission is not obtained.
