Student Awards: Institute for Turkish Studies Dissertation Writing Grant

Since 1983, the Institute of Turkish Studies (ITS) has sponsored an annual grant program that offers a variety of awards to scholars, colleges and universities in the United States. The principal purpose of the grant program is to support and encourage the development of research, scholarship, and learning in the field of Turkish Studies in the U.S. All grant applications submitted to the Institute are evaluated by committees comprised of the academic members of the Board of Governors and Associate Members of the ITS. These standing committees present their recommendations to the Board of Governors for approval.

The dissertation writing grants are awarded to graduate students in the social sciences or the humanities who have completed all the requirements for the Ph.D. except their dissertation writing.
