Opportunities for Scholars and Faculty

Elevate your scholarship on Georgia by applying for a grant or fellowship with the Georgian Studies Program.

In order to encourage scholarship on the region, we have opportunities for both Georgian scholars and for Harvard faculty.

Georgian Scholars

Grants for Junior Scholars

Georgian graduate students or junior faculty members can apply for a grant to spend a semester at Harvard, where they will have access to Harvard's research materials and experts.

Short-term Grants

Georgian scholars can also apply for a grant to fund a short-term stay at Harvard (2-3 weeks). They will have the opportunity to network and make use of Harvard’s resources.

Email GeorgianStudies@fas.harvard.edu for more information on both programs.

Harvard Faculty

Research Grants

Harvard faculty from any discipline can apply for a $5,000 grant in support of research related to Georgia. As part of this grant, scholars are encouraged to travel to the region and to establish connections with Georgian scholars and institutions.

Course Development Grants

Harvard faculty from any discipline can apply for a $2,000 grant to develop a new course on the region, or incorporate material on the region into an existing course.
