ARIT fellowships support individual research projects in ancient, historical, and modern times in all fields of the humanities and social sciences that must be carried out in Turkey.

ARIT Research Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences in Turkey
The American Research Institute in Turkey is pleased to offer ARIT fellowships for research in Turkey for the 2023–2024 year. Grants for tenures up to one academic year will be considered; applications for projects of shorter duration, as brief as one or two months, 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 2023, 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.
