The American Research Institute in Turkey takes pleasure in inviting applications for two or three advanced fellowships made possible by support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The fields of study cover all periods of history in the general range of the humanities and include humanistically oriented aspects of the social sciences, prehistory, history, art, archaeology, literature, and linguistics, as well as interdisciplinary aspects of cultural history.
Scholars who have completed their formal training and plan to carry out research in Turkey may apply. They may be U.S. citizens or three-year residents of the U.S. Please consult ARIT headquarters on questions of eligibility.
The fellowships for research in Turkey may be held for four to twelve continuous months. Stipends in the range of $16,800 to $50,400 are available on the basis of individual proposals. RIT maintains two research institutes in Turkey. ARIT in Istanbul has a research library concentrating on Byzantine and Ottoman Turkey. ARIT - Ankara focuses on art, archaeology, and ancient history in its library, and serves Turkish and American archaeologists through its programs. Both institutes have residential facilities for fellows and provide general assistance as well as introductions to colleagues, institutions, and authorities in Turkey.
