Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad (FRA) Fellowships

Description: U.S. Department of Education (US/ED) Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad (FRA) Fellowships are only for a very narrow range of faculty members who wish to conduct 3-12 months of research abroad that leads to the development or strengthening of modern foreign language or area studies curricula at the University of Michigan and is also related to their teaching specialization and their research interests. There are generally only 20 awards available nationally each year.

Eligibility Criteria: Applicants for these awards may be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have been engaged in teaching relevant to their specialization in modern foreign languages or non-West-European area studies courses for at least two years prior to the time the research begins and who will continue to be employed by this university during the tenure of this award. Their research projects must be 3-12 months in length and designed so that they are relevant to their specialization. These awards are not given for dissertation research nor for research that could be conducted in the U.S.A.  All eligible applicants must be on Beni's US/ED Fulbright email user group no later than 2 days prior to the local U-M deadline.

Deadline: No competition has been held since 2011. If there is a competition for future awards the deadline will be announced on this webpage following Congressional approval of funding.

Application Submission: All application materials are submitted online through Beni at the U-M International Institute.

Contact:  Both the competition and all subsequent awards are administered by Beni at the U-M International Institute. For information, instructions, advice, and application materials, email Beni at unlisted@umich.edu.
