The Doctoral Fellows Program is designed to provide the highest research and teaching qualifications to individuals from Georgia and Kyrgyzstan who are positioned to become leading scholars in select fields of social work, public health, education, and psychology.
The awards will support flexible doctoral programs that enable fellows to study and conduct research both abroad and at home, thereby maintaining professional engagement with their home institutions while completing the degree.
Open Society Foundations Scholarship Programs traditionally have supported master’s degree study in the social sciences and humanities for citizens of the former Soviet-bloc countries. For years, much of the higher education reform and leading scholarship in this region has been accomplished by these scholars returning home with master’s-level credentials. Today, building local capacity in academia requires increasingly more sophisticated scholarship mechanisms, such as doctoral degree awards and faculty development fellowships. With limited local resources available to meet the demands for quality higher education in emerging global knowledge centers, international scholarships continue to be an essential tool in our work.
The deadline for applications for the 2012-13 academic year has passed. Please check back again in fall 2012 for the next call for applications.
