The Atlantic Council, in partnership with the Istanbul Policy Center (IPC) at Sabanci University, is excited to announce the 2012-2013 Young Turkey/Young America program. Funded by the US State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, this dynamic exchange program is designed to connect future leaders from the United States and Turkey. The initiative will work towards the vital task of renewing and reinvigorating the important bilateral relationship between the two nations.
The exchange will include two sessions - a trip in the United States (August/September 2012) and a trip in Turkey (March/April 2013). Each trip will be approximately two weeks long, and all participants from both countries will participate in both the US and Turkish sessions. Previous participants have met with: Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg; Senator Chuck Hagel; General Brent Scowcroft; Ibrahim Kalin, primary Foreign Policy Advisor to the Turkish Prime Minister; leading members of the US Congress and Turkish Parliament; Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew; and many others. We are seeking applications from exceptional Turkish and American young professionals, aged 24-35 who are currently involved in international affairs, youth wings of political parties, not-for-profit organizations with a civic society or youth focus, universities, business organizations, government agencies, media, and think tanks and who possess a strong passion for international engagement and have demonstrated leadership abilities. All travel costs, room, and board will be covered by the Atlantic Council and IPC.
