Turkish Studies


The Buffett Institute, with generous support from the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program, provides research grants in modern Turkish studies.

Research proposals for individual and group projects are invited in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. Applicants may place the proposed work in an interdisciplinary context by explaining its relevance to modern Turkey. Projects may build on the work of existing research or they may be an entirely new initiative, as long as they are on modern Turkey. Proposals indicating collaboration with Turkish institutions and colleagues will be given priority.

Northwestern faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates are eligible for these travel awards. Students must be affiliates of the Buffett Institute (undergraduate affiliate application | graduate affiliate application).

Application deadlines:

  • October 15 for winter and spring projects
  • March 15 for summer and fall projects
