This grant of up to £1000 for proposed academic research is open to Georgian scholars resident in Georgia and/or Russia. The research should focus on Georgia’s interactions with Russia over the centuries. This may involve fieldwork and/or deskwork in archives, museums and libraries in Georgia, Russia or elsewhere.

The primary criteria for the grant are the quality and viability of the proposed research. In addition, preference will be given to those in early or mid-career (ie. aged 25-45), to applications with co-funding (in cash and/or in kind) and/or where costs are reduced by borrowing equipment rather than buying it and/or to applications that promise to generate publishable outputs in English.
