SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS

1. The Turkish Coalition of American (TCA), a Washington, DC-based nonprofit that aims to foster a better understanding of U.S.-Turkey relations and Turkish Americans here in the U.S., has the funding for 100 scholarships per year for African American, Armenian American, Bosnian American, Filipino American, Hispanic American, Macedonian American, and Native American students who have been accepted to a study abroad or language program in Turkey, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), and Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Eligible students will receive between $500 and $2,000.

Since 2007, these scholarships have subsidized the cost of study abroad for students who are traditionally underrepresented in study abroad programs. They also serve as an incentive for students to consider Turkey as a potential study abroad destination.
