Receive support to travel abroad to conduct your research
The Mario Einaudi Center’s Fulbright Advisor supports Cornell’s graduate students applying for the annual nationwide Fulbright-Hays DDRA Fellowships awards for the U.S. Department of Education. These prestigious grants provide generous support to individual doctoral students who conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of six to 12 months.
Types of Projects Supported
Supported are projects that deepen research knowledge on and help the nation develop capability in areas of the world not generally included in U.S. curricula Projects focusing on Western Europe are not supported. There is a competitive priority (5 additional points) for the fields of study that were not considered previously. These fields, economics, engineering, international development, global education, mathematics, political science, public health, science and technology are considered important for national and international concerns. This is a significant departure from previous years, where the focus was on the arts, humanities and social sciences.
A student is eligible to receive a fellowship if he or she:
§ Is a citizen or national of the United States or is a permanent resident of the United States;
§ Is a graduate student in good standing at an institution of higher education in the United States who, when the fellowship begins, is admitted to candidacy in a doctoral program in modern foreign languages and area studies at that institution;
§ Is planning a teaching career in the United States upon graduation; and
§ Possesses adequate skills in the language(s) necessary to carry out the dissertation project.
Duration of the Grant:
Students may propose research for 6 to 12 months. The fellowship may not be renewed.
Expenses Covered by the Award:
§ Travel expenses, including excess baggage to and from the residence of the fellow to the host country of research;
§ Maintenance and dependents allowances based on the cost of living in country(ies) of research for the fellow and his or her dependent(s);
§ Project allowance for research related expenses such as books, copying, tuition and affiliation fees, local travel and other incidental expenses;
§ Health and accident insurance premiums; and
§ $100.00 administrative fee to applicant institution.
