The Fellowship Scheme will offer 18 professionals from Armenia and Turkey the opportunity to live and follow a special programme at a specific Host Organisation in the neighbouring country for four to eight months.
Individuals are also invited to propose their own project ideas, other than the fellowship opportunities offered by the listed Host Organisations.
The Fellowship Scheme aims to enable cross-border learning opportunities in areas where further exchange of expertise and lasting cooperation is much needed, such as academia, civil society, media, culture and arts, translation and interpreting/language-learning and law.

The Fellowship Scheme is open to applications of citizens and legal residents of Turkey and Armenia.
Before filling in and submitting your application, please read the Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme Regulation, which includes the objectives and eligibility criteria. Hrant Dink Foundation will compile all incoming applications and will submit them to the relevant Host Organisations, which will then identify their preferred candidates.
The Fellowship Scheme launched thanks to the financial assistance of the European Union has a limited budget to 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 ultimate 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 Zeynep Sungur and Anush Babajanyan at email@example.com.
