Research support program for Georgian scholars

19 March 2021

San Diego State University is announcing doctoral research support program for young Georgian scholars. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by the San Diego State University (SDSU). 

This project aims to strengthen the quantitative and qualitative research skills and academic writing skills of young Georgian scholars; raise collaborating Georgian scholars’ research capacity to international standards; increase interaction between Georgian and American academics and researchers, and mentor and coach Georgian scholars for publishing research papers in Georgian and Western academic peer-reviewed journals in STEM fields. Under the program, young Georgian scholars matriculated in a Ph.D. program at a Georgian accredited University, will be given an opportunity for an initial visit of 3 (three) months at San Diego State University. There is provision for an extension for another 3 (three) months based on research performance in San Diego State University. In addition, it may be possible for the stay at SDSU to be extended beyond 6 (six) months if the Georgian candidate is selected by the SDSU mentor to work on a mutually agreed research project which will be financed by the SDSU mentor at the SDSU main campus. 


The application submission process is open from March 15. The Deadline for submitting applications is April 19.


Informational session about the program will take place March 19, 2021 at 8:00 pm GST via Zoom -
