Alan Filer, of Hometown Colorado Springs CO, a graduating senior in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has been named a 2013 Fulbright Scholar. He has been awarded a grant to pursue his research interests in Ulsan South Korea. His project "will seek to explore modifications to existing solar cell structures, mainly in the form of material replacement, either of rare or toxic materials. This replacement will allow for decreased costs and wider employment of these structures." He would like to thank his parents for being invaluable in his educational experience.
