2020-2021 Graduate School International Research and Study Fellowships
Posted: 11/2/2019 (Funding)
Are your students looking for other funding options to do research overseas?
We highly encourage students to explore the following nationally competitive options, open to U.S. citizens. The Office of Fellowships & Awards can provide assistance with preparing applications:
Boren Fellowships: fund up to 12 months overseas—students must incorporate language study into their plans but can combine with independent research, other academic study, or internships (or propose exclusively to study language). This opportunity is currently quite undersubscribed at the graduate level—nationally, approximately 1 out of 3 applicants were awarded last year! Application deadline is in January; please see our website for scheduled information sessions and application support.
Fulbright U.S. Student Program: funds 8-10 months of overseas independent research or academic study (or a combination of both). Fulbright information sessions on campus will be announced in late March and held throughout spring quarter. Application deadline is in September; please see our website for more information and read about our recent graduate student/alumni awardees.
Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Award: funds 6-12 months of dissertation research overseas (must have candidacy by the start of the grant). At least part of the research must be done in a language other than English; applicants are expected to have a thorough background of relevant area studies coursework and applicable language skills. Application deadline varies and may be announced any time between January – April; information sessions forthcoming. Permanent residents may also apply for this funding. Students must work through the Office of Fellowships & Awards to submit an application—see our website.
