This grant of up to £1500 for proposed academic research is open to Georgian scholars resident in Georgia. The research should focus on Georgian-Anatolian studies, bearing in mind the rich cultural and historical heritage of the region around the South-East corner of the Black Sea.

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), and/or to applications for less than the £1500 maximum, and/or 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. Those who have previously received a research grant from FaRiG may not apply.
