French Embassy Fellowships

French Embassy Fellowships

The Embassy of France in Turkey is launching three Fellowships for the year 2018:

– Fellowship for PhD candidates
– Fellowship for Young Visiting Researchers (Submission up to 3 years after obtaining the doctorate)
– Fellowship for Visiting Researchers

France and Turkey have an historical cooperation in the field of higher education and research. The Embassy has supported the implementation of several structural bilateral programs such as the PHC Bosphorus, the TÜBITAK-ANR funding program for research, the French Institute for Anatolian Studies (IFEA) and the French Government Fellowship. Numerous cooperation agreements exist between universities of both countries, and the French-Turkish Galatasaray University counts among the most prestigious Higher Education institutions in Turkey.

It is a priority for the Embassy of France to foster new collaborations opportunities between Turkish and French researchers in order to enhance and maintain this fruitful link between our two countries.

This Fellowship call represents a new opportunity for Turkish researchers to connect themselves to French teams at different stages of their academic career. These high level Fellowships are designed with the aim of triggering new links that should be the starting point of long lasting and broader scientific collaborations.

The Embassy of France in Turkey offers Fellowships for applicants who intend to go further in their collaboration with a French academic institution.
