Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme 2016-2017
The Hrant Dink Foundation has established the Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme in 2014 with a view to encourage cross-border affiliation and cooperation of professionals from the two neighbouring countries within the framework of the programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process financed by the European Union.
In 2014-2015, out of 91 applicants, with the available funding the Fellowship Scheme supported 12 fellows from Armenia and 6 fellows from Turkey for their activities in Istanbul, Yerevan and Gyumri.
In 2016-2017, the Fellowship Scheme will continue to offer 18 professionals from Armenia and Turkey the opportunity to live in the neighbouring country and follow a special programme at a specific Host Organisation for four to eight months. Individuals are also invited to propose theirown project ideas, other than the fellowship opportunities offered by the listed Host Organisations.
The Fellowship Scheme will continue to support the activities in areas where further exchange of expertise and lasting cooperation is much needed, such as academia, civil society, media and communication, culture and arts, architecture and design, culinary, translation and interpreting/language-learning, law.
With the available funding, the Fellowship Scheme will support 18 fellows. In case more than 18 fellow candidates are matched with Host Organisations, a Selection Committee with three members from Turkey and Armenia will determine the final 18 fellows. The Selection Committee members will function within their own capacity and with their own experience and judgments, their assessment can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the organisations they are affiliated with.
For further information and questions, you can contact the project coordinators Armenuhi Nikoghosyan, Anna Yeghoyan and Zeynep Sungur at email@example.com.
