PMCG Awards Need-Based Scholarships to Second-Year MA Students
Thursday, 11 October, 2018

This Thursday, October 11, Davit Lezhava, Public Policy Sector Director of the Policy and Management Consulting Group (PMCG), awarded need-based scholarships to three second-year MA students – Giga Gotsiridze, Ia Tchankvetadze, and Nino Shoshiashvili. As ISET is a premier graduate education and research institution in the South Caucasus, producing dozens of top-notch young economists every year, PMCG scholarship is a great investment not only in the human capital of these three students but also in the future of Georgia and the South Caucasus generally.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. David Lezhava who has 20 years of professional working experience in the fields of public finance and economic development, regional development, social policy, and energy policy shared some insights from his diverse work experience, which includes working at the National Bank of Georgia, the International Monetary Fund, the Ministry of Finance of Georgia, and PMCG. Mr. Lezhava also gave some practical advice to the students.

PMCG’s donation of need-based scholarships to ISET students closes an important circle. Back in 2005-6, Mr. Aleksi Aleksishvili, CEO and Chairman of PMCG, was part of a small group of Georgian reformers who worked with the late Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania to create a donor coalition and establish the International School of Economics at the Tbilisi State University.
