With the objective of promotion and development of modern foreign languages and area studies through the educational structure of the United States, the U.S. Department of Education offers two Fulbright-Hays Fellowship programs.
Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) Fellowship Program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral students to conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of six to 12 months.
Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad (FRA) Fellowship Program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund faculty to maintain and improve their area studies and foreign language skills by conducting research in other countries for periods of three to 12 months.
The Office of International Affairs administers the two programs. Competitions are held annually, pending the availability of funds. Faculty and graduate students must apply through the Office of International Affairs.
If you are interested in applying, you must contact Fulbright-Hays Project Director Joanna Kukielka-Blaser to discuss the application process.
