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 provides support for these scholarly endeavors by maintaining research centers in Istanbul and Ankara, and by administering programs of fellowships to support research in Turkey at doctoral and advanced research levels. The range of research encompassed by American research in Turkey reflects the cultural richness of Turkey itself. From the Old Stone Age to the present, Turkey presents numerous opportunities for research in archaeology, architecture and art history, historical, textual, and archival studies, linguistics, literature, musicology, religion, anthropology, political science, sociology, and interdisciplinary studies.

ARISC supports conferences, fellowships, publications, and teaching resources for use both in the United States and in the host countries where the Institute is located, and encourages other forms of cooperation.  ARISC  has local representatives in Yerevan, Baku and Tbilisi, who serve to facilitate research and nurture scholarly ties between institutions and individuals.
Founded in 1881, The American School of Classical Studies provides graduate students and scholars from affiliated North American college and universities a base for the advanced study of all aspects of Greek culture, from antiquity to the present day. It also contributes considerably to the dissemination of information about Greek history and archaeology to the Greek public, as well as to the international and Greek scholarly communities.
The Amheida project was started at Columbia University in 2001. Since 2008, New York University is the primary sponsoring institution, with Columbia University continuing as a partner in the project. The excavations at Amheida collaborate with other participating groups in the Dakhleh Oasis Project, an international venture now three decades old dedicated to studying the interaction between human settlement and the environment over the long span from the earliest human presence in the oasis to modern times. Amheida itself has remains spanning nearly three millennia, and paleolithic material is found along its fringes.
Amorium is the longest ongoing British excavation ever conducted in Turkey. Work at Amorium started in 1987 under the directorship of the late Prof. R. Martin Harrison of the University of Oxford. There have been field seasons every year since (with the exception of 1999, and 2010–2012), making a total of 22 years to date. The team of archaeologists, surveyors, conservators, and students that works at Amorium is very international. In recent years, for example, there have been as many as 40 team members from 10 different countries, and all of them participated in a single integrated programme of work.
