Fulbright-Hays DDRA 2017 Competition Is Open

The 2017 Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) competition is open. The deadline for submission of a complete application, including all supporting documents, is 9:00 am, Monday, March 13, 2017.

The Fulbright-Hays DDRA funds doctoral candidates (US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents) to conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of six to 12 months. The grant does not fund research whose focus is on Western European countries.

For 2017 there are two areas identified as competitive preference priorities: projects that use any of 78 priority languages selected from a list of Less Commonly Taught Languages; and projects conducted in the fields of economics, engineering, international development, mathematics, political science, public health, science, comparative or international education, or technology.
