A good thing to keep in the back of the mind is the Turkish Cultural Foundation’s (TCF) fellowship programme. There are two types: the Fellowship in Turkish Culture and Art and the Cultural Exchange Fellowship.
The TCF Fellowship in Turkish Culture and Art has provided funding to young and established scholars since 2008. Amounts of up to USD$ 2,000 are awarded for papers on Turkish cultural and social studies accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals or for participation in national and international meetings on Turkish art or cultural and social studies, or for contributions made to a conference or workshop. These fellowships are intended for those who are enrolled in a graduate program or who have an equivalent record of professional accomplishment and publications. There is no deadline – applications are accepted all throughout the year. Please visit the website for instructions on sending in your aplication.
Established in 2012, the TCF Cultural Exchange Fellowship aims to support international exchanges between artists, as well as professionals working in fields related to the arts and culture.
