Two Acadia University researchers have been honoured by Fulbright Canada with exciting international exchange opportunities. Dr. Mark Mallory (Biology) was awarded a prestigious Visiting Research Chair position at the University of Washington (Seattle). Gillian Grant, an Acadia undergraduate Business major, was awarded a distinguished Killam Fellowship at Clemson University (South Carolina).
Fulbright Canada is a bi-national, treaty-based, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization with a mandate to identify and engage exceptional scholars and students in reciprocal academic exchange.
Fulbright Visiting Research Chairs are intended for exceptional Canadian scholars who wish to conduct research in the United States. As a Visiting Research Chair, Dr. Mallory will spend time at the University of Washington undertaking a research project titled “Flux of seabird-transported contaminants to and from the North American Arctic.”
Since its inception in 2002, the Killam Fellowship program has provided exchange opportunities to over 400 outstanding undergraduate students throughout Canada and the United States. As a Killam Fellow, Acadia student Gillian Grant will continue her studies in accounting and business administration in a new setting at Clemson University.
Congratulations and bon voyage to both researchers!
