Fazair Musaev, 21, from village Kesalo, Gardabani Municipality, Georgia is a Tbilisi State University undergraduate student of Business and Economics, where he has been enrolled through so called “4+1 program” for ethnic minority youth in Georgia.

Fazair, being dedicated and enthusiastic student, has been awarded with the Erasmus Mundus mobility scholarship by the European Commission and for one year is studying in Sofia, Bulgaria as an exchange student during the 2015/2016 academic year.

Fazair has heard about availability of Erasmus Mundus program special preferential quota under the 3rd target groups (for vulnerable groups) from one of the ECMI Caucasus’ seminars under the project “Raising Awareness of ethnic Minorities on EU Integration” in 2014 (supported by OSGF and UN Association of Georgia – UNAG). Being motivated to apply ECMI Caucasus staff has consulted him throughout the application procedure and as a result of selection he is one of the few ethnic minority students in Georgia who could get chance to study abroad and with full scholarship from the European Union scheme.

ECMI Caucasus team wishes Fazair successful exchange period abroad and hopes that his experience will be motivating factor for ethnic minority youth from remote regions in Georgia.
