Nynorsk sociological study finds women are more open to studying abroad

A study has found that women are willing to study abroad for more than the average, even though they are not more likely to do so than men.

The study from the University of Nynorsk in Russia shows that women who have studied abroad for at least a year are more likely than their male counterparts to apply for scholarships.

The research, which was published in the journal Social Science Research, has already been translated into a few languages and will appear in a forthcoming issue of Sociology.

The findings suggest that the gender gap in academic scholarships is a problem not only for women but also for men.

But while the study shows that the gap is not only a problem for women, it is also a problem in terms of men.

Women are more willing to take a risk in order to get the maximum benefit from an academic scholarship, said lead researcher Valentina Zemlianova, from the Department of Sociological Anthropology at the university.

This study, which is being conducted under the supervision of Professor Viktor Eremenko from the School of Social Sciences, shows that in order for women to get a better chance at getting a scholarship, they need to have the opportunity to travel abroad. 

The study also shows that men have a higher chance of getting a prestigious academic scholarship than women.

Women were more likely if they were already working in the fields of humanities, sociology or political science.

The researchers suggest that this is because they are less likely to be in a situation where they are already qualified to take part in the study and therefore have a stronger motivation to apply. 

“It shows that when women go abroad, they don’t want to study,” Professor Zemlichenko told the BBC News website.

“This means that women can’t be completely confident that they can study abroad.

This is a real disadvantage for them and a huge obstacle to their advancement.” 

According to Professor Zeplia, the study found that the number of women who apply for academic scholarships in Russia is more than double the number who apply in the United States.

The gender gap has also grown during the last five years.

The gap between the number and the number from other countries widened from 20 to 30 percent between 2008 and 2014. 

Professor Zemlia, who has also worked as a sociologist at the Centre for Women’s Studies in Moscow, told the Russian news agency Interfax that the problem of the gender-based scholarship gap was not only in terms the number but also in terms what women and men are willing and able to do.

The women were more apt to be willing to sacrifice their career to get their research funded and to undertake unpaid work, she said. 

‘We’re just not interested’ The study shows women were also more willing than men to apply if they felt they could do more for the country.

The reasons for this were different depending on where they live and how much money they had.

For instance, if they lived in a poor country, the gap in financial resources would be larger.

“We are just not invested in the situation in which we live,” Professor Gennady Zemliyan, an economist and researcher at the Institute of Economic and Social Research in St Petersburg, told Interfax.

“For example, when we look at women’s salaries in the US, women earn around 30 percent less than men and a woman in Russia earns just 40 percent less.” 

In the UK, Professor Zemin says there are no quotas on how much women can earn.

“In a society where women are considered second-class citizens and their place is under threat from the men, the situation is different in the UK,” she told the British newspaper The Times.

“If you want to go to the US and get a scholarship that will give you more than you can ever afford, then it is quite difficult.” 

The survey was conducted in 2015 and was conducted using a sample of 634 students aged 18 to 25 from the cities of Nijmegen, Amsterdam, Krakow, Ljubljana, Malmo, Gothenburg and Uppsala.

The results are based on a sample selected from a representative national sample.
