(Sept. 26, 2013) -- All UTSA students are invited to participate in an upcoming information presentation on the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, which is sponsored by the Fulbright Program and Education Abroad Services. Fulbright alumni ambassador Zigfried Hampel-Arias will be available to discuss the Fulbright program at 1 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 3 in the University Center Travis Room (2.202) on the UTSA Main Campus.

Hampel-Arias is a Fulbright recipient who conducted research in Argentina on cosmic ray astrophysics with the Pierre Auger Observatory. He is a Ph.D. candidate in physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is working on the HAWC Gamma-Ray Observatory near Puebla, Mexico.

The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsors the Fulbright Award. They offer hundreds of grants to students, scholars and teachers who undertake graduate study, research and teaching while abroad.

Several UTSA students have participated in the Fulbright program including:

  • Aaron Carter-Cohn, who received a Fulbright to study music theory in Nigeria with local musicians
  • Bernd Werth, a German student who received a Fulbright to study in the UTSA Management of Technology program
  • Lydia Overbaugh, who received a full research grant to Thailand to conduct primate research
  • Carla Benson, who received a grant to go to Turkey as an English teaching assistant
  • Tiffiany Hargis, who received a grant to go to Taiwan as an English teaching assistant
  • Frauke Steinmeier, who received a grant to go to Luxembourg as an English teaching assistant

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
