UW-Madison ranked as the top university in the 2018 Fulbright-Hays Awards with seven students being awarded grants that will help further their research abroad.

The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Awards provides grants for up to 12 months to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral students who conduct research in other countries.

The awards are funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s International and Foreign Language Education office.

This year, the seven UW-Madison grant recipients will conduct research in Japan, Nigeria, México, Ecuador, Argentina, Guatemala and Thailand. Their research will revolve around education, agriculture and social mobilization.

“These students will be developing expertise in area studies and languages that are vital for the state and nation. I am pleased they will have this exceptional opportunity,” said Guido Podestá, vice provost and dean of UW–Madison’s International Division.

All seven UW-Madison recipients will begin their research in the coming year.
