Madeline Hamblin, (fourth from left in front row), Director of the Office of Graduate Affairs, reported that 28 students out of 42 applicants received the awards this year, and four students are on the alternate list.

    Chicago students continue to garner record-breaking numbers of Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad fellowships, which the U.S. Department of Education awards annually. For the 19th consecutive year, Chicago students have won more Fulbright-Hays DDRA fellowships than any other U.S. educational institution. This year, 28 of 42 Chicago applicants have received fellowships, and four students were on the alternate list, as of this printing. Last year, 23 students received the fellowships, and in 2003, 21 students were recipients of the awards.
