Reminder: Deadline for applications for Mercator – IPC Fellowships is May 15, 2012
May 8, 2012 by Changing Turkey
Stiftung Mercator and Istanbul Policy Center at Sabancı University invite young academics and professionals with an interest in Turkey to apply for a new fellowship program that aims to strengthen academic, political and social ties between Turkey and Germany, as well as Turkey and Europe. The program is based on the premise that in an increasingly globalized world, acquisition of knowledge and an exchange of ideas and people are the preconditions for meeting the challenges of the 21st century.
Mercator – IPC Fellowships are available to outstanding young academics and professionals who are at the beginning of their career and work in one of three thematic areas:
| EU/German-Turkish relations
| Climate change
The fellows will be expected to work on academic or practical projects at Istanbul Policy Center (IPC). A PhD is preferred but not required for this position if the applicant’s work experience and expertise meet the program requirements and the jury’s satisfaction. Fellowships are available for 6 to 12 months and predominantly, but not exclusively, granted to applicants from Germany. Applicants cannot apply for fellowships to fund their PhD dissertations.
The 2012 fellowships begin September 1, 2012 and the deadline for applications is May 15, 2012.
Please send your applications or further questions by email to the Program Coordinator Mr. Daniel Grütjen (see below for contact details). Feel free to share this information with your friends, colleagues and students. For full details, see the Mercator – IPC Fellowship program guidelines and visit
