This week, the U.S. Department of Education announced that, due to budgetary constraints, “no new awards will be made under the [Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad] Program in FY 2011.” See the complete announcement here.
This represents an estimated 5.8 Million USD reduction in support, which will have repercussions across the entire graduate community (particularly the Chinese Studies graduate community, which relies heavily on Fulbright-Hayes support for overseas dissertation research).
Has this decision affected you or someone you know? In an effort to keep tabs of how this announcement impacts the overall community, we’d like to hear from you. Please leave a comment here or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your situation and your story.
Our very best wishes to all students affected by this situation.
