In anticipation of a possible late spring grant competition for the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) competition, the Center for Global Initiatives will be conducting an information session for interested students.
This U.S. Department of Education program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral students who conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area studies for the period of six to 12 months.
This grant is available to doctoral candidates who wish to engage in full-time dissertation research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies. The grant provides travel expenses, maintenance allowance for the grantee and his/her dependents, books and other research-related expenses and health insurance.
NOTE: The call for proposals has not been posted, but we have been informed by the U.S. Department of Education that they anticipate a late spring request for proposal.
