USciences recently had the distinction of being listed among the Chronicle of Higher Education’s top Fulbright Scholar institutions thanks to recipient Carrie Waterman PhCog’10 who earned a 2011 Fulbright Scholar award. In recognition of this achievement, the Institute of International Education granted USciences the right to display the digital badge on the right.
Waterman is teaching phytochemistry and/or biomolecules while conducting research on the use of herbal medicines to treat malaria and bacterial and fungal infections. She is working with the departments of chemistry, biology, and pharmacology at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, for 10 months that began in September 2011.
Sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.
The Fulbright Scholar Program is administered by Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), a division of the Institute of International Education.
