The French-Georgian University (FGU) in partnership with the French Institute of Georgia offers three-month scholarships to PhD students of Georgian nationality attached to a Georgian higher education and research institution.

Applications must be presented in French or English. They will be judged according to their scientific quality, the feasibility and the relevance of the research stay envisaged for the realization of the research project.
Fluency in French is a plus.
