The International Institute at the University of Michigan has announced that three doctoral candidates received U.S. Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowships for the 2018-19 academic year.
The highly competitive fellowships, which total more than $67,000, cover travel, living costs and research-related expenses for six to 12 months, with the goal to deepen knowledge of areas in the world not generally included in U.S. curricula.
Nationwide, 100 individual DDRAs were awarded at 40 institutions. Fellowship advisers with the International Institute work with applicants to put forward strong, competitive applications for funding consideration.
“These fellowships give our doctoral students the ability to not only enhance language skills, but also to undertake intensive research necessary for degree completion,” said Beth Dutridge-Corp, fellowships coordinator and Fulbright program adviser with the II. “These three students are outstanding representatives of the leaders and best who help create a community of excellence at U-M.”
