Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad

 

The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad program provides support for graduate students to conduct dissertation research for six to 12 months outside the United States. The research must cover topics in modern languages and area studies (projects focusing on Western Europe are not supported). KU students must apply through the Office of International Programs by March 6, 2017. KU’s project director Rachel Sherman Johnson will transmit the applications to the U.S. Department of Education.
