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 focus is on Western European countries (though it does allow & fund research visits to western European countries that are part of a larger project focused elsewhere).
Though the 2022 competition has not yet opened, the IRIS Awards Office will be hosting 2 information sessions in early November for graduate students interested in learning more about the DDRA and/or getting a jump start on their applications!
Information sessions will be held…
Thursday, November 4, 2021 @ 4pm
336 Ingraham Hall
Monday, November 8, 2021 @ 5pm
Via Zoom @ https://go.wisc.edu/DDRAInfoSession
The two sessions will be identical; no need to attend both. We will have additional information sessions when the 2022 competition does open (though year-to-year that opening date varies and we never know when that will be).
More complete information on the DDRA can be found on our website @ https://iris.wisc.edu/funding/students/ddra/
