CORVALLIS - Greg Perry, a professor in the Agriculture and Resource Economics Department at Oregon State University, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and conduct research in Chile.

Perry will teach an undergraduate class in the University of Talca College of Business and work on research relating to irrigation water management in Chile for the 2004-05 academic year.

Perry received his doctorate in agricultural economics from Texas A & M University in 1986. His expertise is in farm equipment depreciation, ground water pollution, taxation policy and competitiveness, and comparison of tax burdens for farmers at the national and international levels.

Perry is one of 800 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad to some 140 countries for the 2004-2005 academic year through the Fulbright Scholar Program.

The Fulbright Program, America's flagship international educational exchange activity, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. During its 57 years of existence, thousands of U.S. faculty and professionals have studied, taught or done research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts from other countries have engaged in similar activities in the U.S.
