TCA and the Atlantic Council are partnering to provide Turkish Americans with educational opportunities in global affairs and public policy through TCA internships at the Atlantic Council. In early February, TCA President G. Lincoln McCurdy and staff met with former U.S. Ambassador to Turkey Francis J. Ricciardone who is now Vice President and Director of the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East at the Atlantic Council to discuss the internship arrangement. The partnership with Atlantic Council will be a feature of TCA’s internship program, which provides an opportunity for young Turkish Americans to work in Washington, D.C. at congressional offices and non-governmental organizations. As an educational, public, charitable organization, TCA works to engage and cultivate a new generation of young Turkish American leaders, and the intern program is an important component of this mission.
