ETTRICK, Va. (AP) - An accounting and finance professor at Virginia State University is heading to the University of Nigeria next school year thanks to a Fulbright Scholar grant.

Officials say Young Dimkpah Nwoye was recently awarded the grant to lecture and conduct research at the university during the 2015-2016 academic year.

Nwoye plans to undertake an extensive study that estimates potential gross domestic product, output gaps and structural budget balances of developing countries.

He has been teaching at VSU for the past 13 years and previously taught at Bethune-Cookman College and the University of Central Florida.

The Fulbright Program is an international educational exchange program established in 1946 and sponsored by the U.S. government.

Nwoye is one of about 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the program in 2015-2016.
