Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records document the administrative activities of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) regarding the collection of statistical data on Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad fellows. The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship Program was established in 1961 as a part of the Mutual Education and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 (Fulbright-Hays Act, 21 February 1961) to strengthen international relations and promote mutual understanding through educational and cultural exchanges. CAORC's statistical study sought to gather information measuring the educational and intangible benefits the Fellowship Program had during the period 1965-1994. The statistical analysis conducted by CAORC resulted in the report, "Three Decades of Excellence, 1965-1994," which gives demographic, geographic, and disciplinary distribution of the fellows and the educational contributions resulting from their participation in the Program. Materials include survey forms, curricula vitae, correspondence, copies of the statistical report "Three Decades of Excellence, 1965-1994," and mailing lists.
