Fulbright and Grants Abroad for Graduate Students
Get professional or research experience abroad for 6-12 months! Staff from Nationally Competitive Scholarships at Duke will tell you about all you can do around the world with a Fulbright and differentiate the types of grants available. All Duke students and alumni should apply through an on-campus process with deadlines beginning in early summer. Come learn about the possibilities that a Fulbright offers and how Duke can help you develop your strongest application.
Other opportunities abroad that may be of interest: Gates Cambridge for further graduate study at Cambridge University, the Luce Scholars Program for an experiential year in Asia for those who have not yet had in-depth experience there, and DAAD awards for research or further graduate work in Germany.
Deadline Extended: Scott Award Open to Graduate Students Researching Women's History
The Anne Firor Scott Award is given to help students (undergraduates planning to take the History Senior Honors Seminar and graduates working on seminar projects or dissertations) engaged in research in women's history to spend time in archives and resource centers where they can use original historical materials.
Anne Firor Scott, a distinguished historian and pioneer in the field of women's history, taught at Duke from 1961-1991 and received the National Humanities Medal in 2013, among other honors.
The application consists of the following: 1) a proposal of 2-3 pages addressed to the Anne Scott Award Committee, 2) current curriculum vitae or resume, (3) the completed application form. The proposal should describe the student's overall project or the specific resource materials for study, as well as the reasons undertaking the project; the status of work already in process; a budget for requested funds; and explanation of other funds available to the student.
Applications were originally due on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. As part of Duke's Coronavirus Response, the deadline for applications has been extended, for now, to Friday, May 15. The department expects to make a decision by the end of April whether we can still go ahead with the award for this year or not.
