Funding from other sources

Student and youth exchanges
The objective of the German-Turkish organization Jugendbrücke is to intensify German-Turkish student and youth exchanges and to improve opportunities for exchange by implementing concrete measures and by coordinating the efforts of existing programs. Jugendbrücke provides funding for third-party projects as well as for its own exchange and encounter programs. Groups with a partner in Turkey who will reciprocate the exchange are encouraged to apply. Jugendbrücke funding can be combined with other forms of support. The organization maintains offices in Germany as well as in Turkey; please direct your query to the office in your country.


Schulen: Partner der Zukunft
The initiative Schulen: Partner der Zukunft of the German Foreign Office offers small grants for bilateral school partnerships with Turkey, provided that German is taught at the Turkish school.
