                                 DAMON CARDENAS

   Damon Cardenas is the Fall 2011 recipient of the Louise and Michael
  Beldon Doctoral Scholarship, a competitive scholarship awarded each
 year to a Texas resident entering a UTSA doctoral program. Damon will
  enter the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering, a program offered
       jointly by UTSA and the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.

     Cardenas discovered a strong interest in the neurological basis for
      human paralysis while obtaining his electrical engineering degree.
    “One of the most prominent issues on my mind is the occurrence of
    paralysis,” he said. “I cannot imagine what it would be like to live life
    unable to move my arms or legs, or worse, nothing below my neck.”

         According to Cardenas, pursuing his graduate work at UTSA is
          appealing because of the university’s commitment to research
  excellence. “Through engineering, there is the potential to change the
world with the development of new technology and physical techniques,”
     he said. “The changes you make are typically specific to the field of
  engineering, and I would like to focus my research in the field of micro-
 imaging. The scholarship allows me the freedom to concentrate on my
work and gives me a significant boost in my motivation and inspiration to
                                        become a successful researcher.”

     Attracted by the scholarship support he was awarded, Cardenas also
        had personal reasons for continuing his graduate studies at UTSA.
 “San Antonio has always been my home, and despite anticipating future
travels through the course of my professional and educational careers, it
will always be my home,” he said. “I come from a family who claim UTSA
 as their alma mater, including my parents, and I would love to contribute
                       to our family’s Roadrunner legacy of achievements.”

Scholarship. Brooks is one of 12 new recipients of the award nationwide.
       The award is for $10,000 with the chance to renew up to 5 years.


“We are pleased to provide financial support, career guidance and other
     resources to each of these talented men and women as they move
  closer to fulfilling their dreams of becoming business professors,” said
Bernie Milano, KPMG Foundation president. “Over the years it has been
  a pleasure to see the impact the recipients of these scholarships have
                         had on improving diversity in business schools.”


      Brooks states, “I chose UTSA because, along with the university’s
 mission of becoming a Tier I institution, I feel that the program provides
 a supportive and challenging academic atmosphere that will enable me
to become a Ph.D. and have a successful career in academia. I believe
    that the best benefit of being a doctoral student is the opportunity to
work and learn from the accounting faculty. It is clear that our faculty are
  devoted to providing an excellent learning environment and equipping
   students with the skills needed to conduct innovative and meaningful
                         research to be successful in our future careers.”
