Date:9/20/2012

LIVERMORE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation today announced that Grant I. Gillary, a second year graduate student in neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University, has received the Hertz Foundation-George Lerman Fellowship valued at $50,000 annually. Gillary is a 2011 Hertz Fellow.

"We are pleased to announce this Fellowship," stated Dr. Jay Davis, president of the Hertz Foundation, "and we are deeply grateful to David and Louis Lerman for providing much-deserved support for Grant Gillary. Grant is a definitive Hertz Fellow: Multi-talented, brilliant and courageous. He has a strong desire to serve this Nation, merging his considerable leadership experiences and his technical background in pursuit of new breakthroughs in biotechnology."

Gillary graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics.  During junior and senior years he completed a Trident Scholar research project studying a basis set of vector fields for currents in the Chesapeake Bay. He graduated as Salutatorian in May of 2005 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps.

His undergraduate thesis research sparked an interest in computational mathematics and led to his subsequent study of Mathematical Modeling and Scientific Computing at The University of Oxford as a Fulbright Scholar from 2005-2006.  There he completed a thesis studying Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods for the integration of high dimensional probability distributions.  He completed his Master of Science in the fall of 2006 at which time the Marine Corps sent him to Fes, Morocco, to study Modern Standard Arabic at the Arabic Language Institute in Fes. From early 2007 through mid 2008, Gillary completed his initial Marine Corps officer training.  He graduated from the Ground Intelligence Officer Course receiving the Brent L. Morel Award for the honor graduate and the Terrence C. Graves Leadership Aw
