Jessica Felhofer
Pursues her Ph.D. in Chemistry 

“At one point I held three jobs while working my way through school. Scholarship assistance has made so many opportunities available to me and I am grateful.”

- Jessica Felhofer

Jessica Felhofer is helping build a chemical analysis “lab” the size of a microchip that will be accessible anywhere. The potential uses for the chip are limitless; instead of collecting samples and sending them out to be analyzed, results will be available immediately.

Imagine the impact for a military medic on the front lines monitoring patient health or for scientists trying to understand the effect of an emerging environmental crisis.

Scholarships have made it possible for Jessica to pursue her education at UTSA. A graduate of O’Connor High School in San Antonio, she came to the university as an undergraduate student and is now working on her Ph.D. in chemistry with support from the Presidential Scholarship fund.

She says, “at one point I held three jobs while working my way through school. Scholarship assistance has made so many opportunities available to me and I am grateful.”

Give now to support students like Jessica who are building the future in UTSA labs.
