Fulbright Award for Geary Researcher

17 July 2015

UCD awarded highest number of Fulbright Awards

Six UCD scholars have been awarded Fulbright Awards to undertake research and teaching at leading US universities and institutions. This is the highest number of the prestigious awards given to scholars at any university or institution in Ireland this year.

Funded by the Irish and US governments under the Ireland-United States Commission for Educational Exchange, the Fulbright Awards offer Irish and US students, scholars and professionals the opportunity to study, lecture, and research at leading universities and institutions in the US and Ireland respectively. They were first established in 1957.

One of the UCD recipients, Mary Carey, is a PhD candidate in the UCD Geary Institute for Public Policy. Mary is also an economist with the Irish Government Economic and Evaluation Service and a part-time Walsh Fellow with Teagasc. Mary will research the impact of agri-businesses on the rural economy at the University of Missouri.
