The Hrant Dink Foundation has established the Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme in 2014 with a view to encourage cross-border affiliation and cooperation of professionals from the two neighbouring countries within the framework of the programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process financed by the European Union.

In 2016-2017, the Fellowship Scheme will offer 18 professionals from Armenia and Turkey the opportunity to live in the neighbouring country and follow a special programme at a specific Host Organisation for four to eight months. Individuals are also invited to propose their own project ideas, other than the fellowship opportunities offered by the listed Host Organisation
