Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowships

Modified: January 31, 2017
Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowships
The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) Fellowship Program provides opportunities to doctoral candidates to engage in full-time dissertation research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies.
Program Features:  
Students may request funding for a period of no less than six months and no more than 12 months. Funds support travel expenses to and from the country or countries of research; maintenance and dependent(s) allowances based on the location of research; an allowance for research-related expenses; and health and accident insurance premiums.
• Projects focusing on Western Europe are not supported
Eligible Applicants:
A student is eligible to receive a DDRA fellowship if he or she:
  • Is a citizen, national, or permanent resident of the United States 
  • Is a graduate student in good standing at an IHE 
  • Is admitted to candidacy in a doctoral degree program in modern foreign languages or area studies
  • Is planning a teaching career in the United States
  • Possesses sufficient foreign language skills to carry out the dissertation research project 
Campus Deadline:  The Fulbright-Hays application is an institutional application; applicants must apply through their University.  For this reason, nominating schools need to set a campus deadline.  In order to remain in good standing, student applicants must submit their materials by the campus deadline. Failure to meet the campus deadline ends your candidacy. 
Campus Deadline:  Monday, February 27 @ 12:00 noon
Next Steps:  To begin your application, contact Stephen Hill in the Office of Fellowships to express your interest.
