Fulbright-Hays DDRA Fellowship

The Fulbright-Hays DDRA Fellowship Program provides opportunities to doctoral candidates to engage in dissertation research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies. The program is designed to contribute to the development and improvement of the study of modern foreign languages and area studies in the United States.

Applicants must be a US citizen or permanent resident, be a doctoral student in good standing who has been admitted to candidacy, and plan a teaching career in the US upon graduation, or plan to apply language skills (in world areas vital to US national security) and knowledge of these countries in the fields of government, international development, and various professions.

2020 UO Internal Deadline:  February 13 at 12 p.m.

  1. Read the full RFP on the US Department of Education DDRA website to assess your eligibility.
  2. Visit the G5 website to access the application guidelines and submission instructions.
  3. Upload your documents to the G5 site by the UO Internal Deadline. The actual submission of your application will be done by the UO Project Director, Professor Craig Parsons.
  4. Prepare the required narrative if the project involves Human Subjects Research and/or requires IRB approval and email to Lori O’Hollaren by the UO’s Internal Deadline. IRB approval is not needed at the time of application, though funding will not be released until it is approved. Please see the RFP for more information.
