American Research Institute in Turkey

The American Research Institute in Turkey (ARIT) is a non-profit educational institution dedicated to promoting North American and Turkish research and exchanges related to Turkey in all fields of the humanities and social sciences. ARIT supports these scholarly endeavors by maintaining research centers in Istanbul and Ankara and administering fellowship programs to support research in Turkey at doctoral and advanced research levels.

ARIT has assumed the role of custodian of the archives and library materials of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions in Turkey and the former Ottoman Empire, caring for making those materials available to the researching public. The digitized archives and online library materials are accessible through hyperlinks. It also has undertaken research projects on American Board mission history, including the Feriköy Protestant Cemetery.
