The U.S. Department of Education has announced the 2021-2022 Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship Program. Fulbright-Hays fellowships provide opportunities for doctoral candidates to engage in full-time dissertation research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies. 

The program is open only to US citizens, nationals, and permanent residents. Allowable projects are those that focus on one or more of the following geographic areas: 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). Applicants may propose projects lasting from 6 to 12 consecutive months, and projects may start as early as October 15, 2021.

Students apply through the Graduate College, and the Graduate College’s deadline is Friday, March 19 at 5:00 p.m.  For details on the fellowship and the application process, visit the Fulbright-Hays listing in our Fellowship Finder database.
