TCF Fellowship in Turkish Culture and Art Program Enters Evaluation Year
The Turkish Cultural Foundation (TCF) Fellowship in Turkish Culture and Art was launched in 2007 to support academic research, studies, and publications on Turkish culture and art with the goal to increase knowledge of Turkey’s cultural heritage in Turkey and around the world. As of 2013, 68 scholars have been awarded this TCF Fellowship, including 16 scholars who received the Fellowship this year.
TCF decided to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of this Fellowship program and therefore will not be offering the Fellowship in 2014.
Our evaluation will seek feedback from our past fellows, as well as from hundreds of scholars all around the world who formally recommended their students or fellow scholars for this fellowship. We hope that this reflection will help us to better assess the contributions that the TCF Fellowship program has made to increasing scholarship and publications in Turkish cultural studies and to raising public knowledge in this area. The evaluation will also help to chart the future course of the TCF Fellowship Program. TCF also welcomes feedback about the program from all interested individuals and institutions.
