2015 Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship

The FULBRIGHT-HAYS provides grants to colleges and universities to fund doctoral students to conduct research in other countries for periods of six to 12 months. Projects deepen research knowledge on and help the nation develop capability in areas of the world not generally included in U.S. curricula including Africa, East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, South Asia, the Near East, Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia, and the Western Hemisphere (excluding the United States and its territories). Projects focusing on Western Europe are not supported.

A student is eligible to receive a fellowship if he or she:
•         Is a citizen or national of the United States or is a permanent resident of the United States;
•         Is a graduate student in good standing at an institution of higher education in the United States who, when the fellowship begins, is admitted to candidacy in a doctoral program
•         Is planning a teaching career in the United States upon graduation; and
•         Possesses adequate skills in the language(s) necessary to carry out the dissertation project.

Projects in the field of economics, engineering, international development, global education, mathematics, political science, public health, science, or technology proposed by an applicant who will use one of 78 less commonly taught languages in his or her research are particularly competitive.

For details, including more information about priority areas and the list of less commonly taught languages, see:
