International Scholarship Programs and Home Country Economic and Social Development: Comparing Georgian and Moldovan Alumni Experiences

Thank you for your interest in this study!

The aim of this research is to gain a better understanding of how alumni of international scholarship programs conceive of their contributions to national development. The first stage of data will be collected through interviews with alumni of scholarship programs in both Moldova and Georgia. Scholarship program alumni who completed a Master’s degree in the United States are invited to participate.

The interviews will ask alumni about their experiences following their scholarship program, their perceptions of the link between international scholarships and the development of their home countries, and how qualities in their home countries may influence their choices. Interviews will last approximately 1 hour and can be conducted in person or over Skype. Interviewees will be sent the interview protocol in advance so they can prepare for the interview.

Dates and location of interviews:

  • In-person interviews:
    • Moldova: October 18 to November 16, 2014
    • Georgia: November 20 to December 21, 2014
  • Skype interviews: October 18 to December 21, 2014
