Back in 2014, Beyond Borders started this website,, to publicize the availability of grants, and particularly travel grants to support the commerce between Turkey and Armenia.  The EU supported this initiative as part of its move to abolish borders, get beyond them in its terminology. While the EU supported this effort, it was primarily an effort of the Hrant Dink Foundation program. This foundation supports the work of Hrant Dink who was murdered in 2007. He was a newspaper editor who devoted his life’s work to the reconciliation of the Turkish and Armenian peoples, but one who worked to increase awareness of the genocide of the Armenian people.

The project of promotion by Beyond Borders ended in 2021, and the new travel grant program can be accessed directly at the Foundation website. This website exists to promote the historical record, and might occasionally supplement that record with content in a similar vein.
