Grainger's Fulbright Award will support his 4-month visiting faculty position to teach and perform research at the School of Pharmacy, Centre for Bioengineering and Nanomedicine, and Centre for Innovation at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946, the program seeks to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.
Competitively selected U.S. citizens apply for and receive support to study, conduct research, and exercise their talents abroad. The Fulbright Program is recognized among the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in over 155 countries.
Managed by the Institute of International Education, the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsors the Fulbright Program from an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress. Additional direct and in-kind support comes from partner governments, foundations, corporations, and host institutions both in and outside the U.S.
