The American Research Institute in Turkey (ARIT) offers summer fellowships for advanced Turkish language study at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul. The fellowships support students pursuing the equivalent of one full academic year of college-level Turkish language study during an intensive summer course.
Candidates must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or nationals who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate study programs. They must also have a GPA of at least a B in their academic program and be able to perform at the high-intermediate level on a language proficiency-based admissions exam for ARIT.
This program is currently sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Post-Secondary Education, the American Association of Teachers of Turkic Languages, and Georgetown University.
