Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme was launched by the Hrant Dink Foundation in 2014 with a view to promote cross-border affiliation and cooperation of professionals from the two neighbouring countries. In 2014-2015, the Foundation supported 18 fellows for their activities at various host organisations in the neighbouring country.
In 2016-2017 the Fellowship Scheme will continue to offer 18 professionals from Armenia and Turkey the opportunity to live and follow a programme at a specific host organisation in the neighbouring country for 4 to 8 months within the framework of the programme Support to the Armenia- Turkey Normalisation Process financed by the European Union.
The Fellowship Scheme seeks to establish and sustain professional ties, to produce tools, mechanisms and platforms that will serve for long-term cooperation between Armenia and Turkey. In essence, it aims to enable cross-border learning opportunities in areas where further mutual expertise and cooperation is needed, such as - and not limited to - academia, civil society, media, culture and arts, translation and interpreting, language-learning, law, medicine, technology, economics.
