Moon and Stars Project grants are dedicated to highlighting Turkey's arts and culture scene and establishing a two-way cultural interaction between the United States and Turkey. The American Turkish Society awards competitive grants to support emerging and established artists in an effort to promote this cross-cultural dialogue. Project-specific grants in support of travel and lodging are provided for projects exhibited in the U.S. The grant program is advised by Binnaz Saktanber and Kaan Nazli, former directors of The Moon and Stars Project and The Society's Art & Culture Committee.

Since 2011, The Moon and Stars Project operates under the umbrella of The American Turkish Society, which continues the legacy of MASP through innovative arts & cultural programs.
