  • Philip Rudd, PhD, applied linguistics, 2008, traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, on a prestigious 2005 Fulbright-Hays grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) program provides grants to fund individual doctoral students conducting research in modern foreign languages and area studies in other countries.
