The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) fellowship program released their call for applications.

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 periods of six to 12 months.

This grant is available to Ph.D. candidates who wish to engage in full-time dissertation research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies. Projects focusing on Western Europe are not eligible for funding. The grant provides travel expenses, maintenance allowance for the grantee and his/her dependents, books and other research-related expenses and health insurance.

Applicants from all academic disciplines and departments are invited to apply.

The campus deadline to submit applications is Friday, June 13, 2014.
