FaRiG is pleased to be able to offer small grants towards expenses incurred by Georgian scholars attending academic conferences, symposia, colloquia and other such international events (particularly when the scholar is delivering a paper or presentation or is a member of a panel). Such grants may be used to top up funding from other sources, eg. when scholars have won an overseas research scholarship.

The expenses might be registration fees and/or accommodation costs.

Applicants are expected to raise at least 50% of total expenses from other sources.

FaRiG would normally make the payment direct to the event organisers against suitable documentation (thus reducing delays and bank charges).

Enquiries and applications (in advance of the event) should be sent by email to Robert Scallon on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
