Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme

During Turkey’s negotiation process for full membership to the European Union, important responsibilities fall upon every segment of the society from public institutions to the private sector, and from non-governmental organizations to the universities. Therefore, there is a need for individuals who are specialized on EU-related issues. In accordance with this need, the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme, a project funded by the European Union (EU), aims to increase the number of experts in the EU field and support Turkey’s administrative capacity building efforts for the effective implementation of EU acquis within the framework of Turkey’s negotiation process for full membership to the EU.

The Jean Monnet Scholarship Program was created under an agreement signed between the European Commission and the Republic of Turkey in 1989. It is one of Turkey’s most long-running projects.

Deadline for application for the 2019/2020 Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme is December 4, 2018
