Ayçanur Yildirim is a member of Association of Renaissance Institute and will visit Armenia as a grantee of the 2nd round of the Hrant Dink Foundation’s Armenia-Turkey Travel Grant.
The Hrant Dink Foundation established the Turkey-Armenia Travel Grant in March 2014 and will issue open calls up to May 2015. The Travel Grant will finance the travels of around 200 individuals, giving them an opportunity to travel to the neighboring country for the implementation of their targeted projects.
The Turkey-Armenia Travel Grant is administered with the financial assistance of the European Union within the framework of the Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalization Process Programme.
Ms. Arpine Aleksanyan and Ms. Sona Baloyan from Yerevan, from “Matenadaran” Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, were supported with the travel grant to visit Istanbul, Turkey for meetings with the Armenian Patriarchate, Armenian high schools, foundations and publishing houses to discuss possibilities of further collaboration on preserving the Armenian culture.
