The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) Program provides grants to doctoral students who conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of six to 12 months. The program funds projects that deepen research knowledge on and help the nation develop capability in areas of the world not generally included in U.S. curricula. The DDRA Program supports research projects 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). Projects focusing on Western Europe are not supported.
In contrast to the Fulbright IIE U.S. Student Program, which is limited to a stay in a single country, the DDRA program is designed for stays in one or more countries. A Western European country may be included as one of the stays, if archival work or other research needs related to the non-Western project warrant such a stay.
Award: The grant provides travel expenses, maintenance allowance for the grantee and his/her dependents, books and other research-related expenses and health insurance. Please note that students may not accept certain grants (IIE, Boren, IREX, Japan Foundation) in the same fiscal year that a Fulbright-Hays grant is awarded.
