Our congratulations to CH alumna Rebecca Gray (CH 2010-11) who has won a Fulbright Scholarship.

A BE (Hons) graduate, Rebecca will complete a PhD in mechanical and aerospace engineering, specialising in dynamic systems and control engineering, at Princeton University.

This year, 10 of the 26 Fulbright Scholarships awarded went to University of Canterbury post-graduates to study and research at top universities in the US.

UC's Fulbright representative Dr Clemency Montelle says the Fulbright awards are not given on the basis of academic merit alone. She says, "Students must also have ambassadorial qualities, show all-round high achievement, they must be leaders, community minded and be of the calibre that can make a splash overseas in academics and beyond."

Rebecca added, "Ever since I started to think seriously about my education I have dreamed about attending university in the US. I'm so excited to have this opportunity to study at such as amazing university and to be a part of their university culture."
