Information Session: Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad

The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) program 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 primary focus is on Western European countries though it does allow for & fund research visits to western European countries that are part of a larger project focused elsewhere.

Though the 2023 competition has not yet opened, the IRIS Awards Office will be hosting an information session on November 14 for graduate students interested in learning more about the DDRA and getting a jump start on their applications!

The information sessions will be held…

Monday, November 14, 2022 @ 4pm

336 Ingraham Hall

We will have additional information sessions when the 2023 competition does open (though year-to-year that opening date varies and we never know when that will be). I am also available for appointments to discuss DDRA, your particular work, and the like throughout the year.

More complete information on the DDRA can be found on our website @
