The Institute of Turkish Studies

Founded and incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1982, the Institute of Turkish Studies (ITS) is the only non-profit, private educational foundation in the United States exclusively dedicated to the support and development of Turkish Studies in American higher education. The Institute is an independent, tax exempt organization and does not seek to influence legislation nor advocate particular policies or agendas. ITS currently benefits from the location of its offices at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service on the campus of Georgetown University, the oldest and largest school of international affairs in the country.

The Institute's location in one of America's leading universities and in the nation's capital provides it with a unique opportunity to pursue its objectives. The Institute has full access to a variety of research and information facilities and resources at Georgetown University. At the same time, the Institute benefits from being located in Washington, DC, where the Library of Congress has the largest collection of books on Turkey in the United States and where there are a number of educational institutions and international economic organizations actively dealing with Turkey.

In keeping with its charter and tax-exempt status, the Institute does not seek to influence legislation.
