- Applicants must be enrolled in a Masters or a PhD program.
- Students must have had at least half an academic year of Ottoman instruction. Complete beginners are not eligible to apply. It is essential that you give details about your prior Ottoman instruction on the application form.
- The participants should be aware that instruction will be partly or completely in Turkish with some explanations in English. Therefore, a solid knowledge of modern Turkish grammar is a necessity. We understand that some students are not conversant in Turkish, but can read and follow when spoken to; which is acceptable.
- Knowledge of Arabic and/or Persian is preferred, but not necessary.
