The 2021-2022 Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) competition is open and the deadline approaching!
The deadline for submission of a complete application, including all supporting documents, is 10:00 am, Thursday, April 1, 2021.
Go to http://iris.wisc.edu/funding/students/ddra/ for information on the application process & campus guidance, documents, resources, and deadlines.
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 6 to 12 months. The grant does not fund research whose focus is on Western European countries (though it does allow & fund research visits to western European countries that are part of a larger project focused elsewhere).
The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) Office of the U.S. Department of Education has posted a technical assistance webinar for the 2021-2022 award cycle on its YouTube page @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgIdEwQxmXc
Also, the UW-Madison’s Fulbright Program Advisor, Mark Lilleleht, is also available to meet and discuss the program, review statements, and otherwise assist applicants at every point in the process.
