"Having been through the program,
I sometimes try to make certain aspects
of the work a little more rich, fun or
dynamic," he said. "I remind (students)
that there is a method to the madness."
Bauermeister graduated from the Uni-
versity in 2004 with his Master of Public
Health degree and again in 2006 with
a Ph.D. in Health Behavior and Health
Education, one of five degrees offered by
the School of Public Health. He returned
to the University to teach in 2009 after
a post-doctoral fellowship at Columbia
As an assistant professor in the
Department of Health Behavior and
Health Education, Bauermeister - who
calls his method of instruction "dynamic
and approachable" - currently teach-
es a core departmental graduate-level
course and said he plans to teach courses
on human sexuality during upcoming
He said his interest in human sexuality,
which has led him to study topics such as
HIV/AIDS, the fostering of sexual rela-
tionships on the Internet, and health pro-
motion strategies, stemmed from doing
research when he was a student.
Today, Bauermeister is devoted to bet-
ter understanding sexuality as a valu-
able component of public health, and he
pursues his interests through a research
group called the SexLab.
Researchers from the SexLab col-
laborated with the School of Information
and the HIV/AIDS Resource Center on
campus to develop projects ranging from
analyzingsmoking habits among sexual-
minority women to investigating young
men's motives for choosing not to receive

With expansion, Fulbright
offers interdisciplinary track
Pearl Harbor survivor Quinton Pyle, 88,of Fredericksburg, Texas, covers his heart during the National Anthem at the Pearl Har-
bor Commemoration Ceremony at the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas yesterday.

Swenson attributed the expan-
sion to officials in Congress
and President Barack Obama's
administration who were inter-
ested in expanding opportunities
for students to pursue exchange
programs. She added that the
bureau's emphasis on enhancing
the use of English abroad also
contributed to the expansion of
the ETA program.
"English is basically becoming
the tool by which all exchanges
can take place ... and one (can)
learn more about the United
States ... the English Teaching
Assistantship is a critical com-
ponent of that whole initiative to
increase the teaching of English
worldwide," Swenson said.
Swenson added that the
expansions would mean an
increase in the opportunities
available to students applying for
Fulbright's grant program.
"It should make it easier to
get a grant in theory because the
number of awards is increasing,"
she said. "But what has also been
happening in the past couple of
years is that we have seen a large
growth in the number of applica-
Swenson went on to say that
9,335 students have applied to
the program this year, up from
8,600 last year.
"It does allow for more oppor-
tunity but, by the same token, we
are seeing more American stu-
dents interested in taking part in
the Fulbright program," she said.
Fulbright applicant and Uni-
versity alum Khadeejah Sani
hopes to pursue sustainable
energy engineering research
in affiliation with the Masdar
Institute of Science and Technol-
ogy in Abu Dhabi. Sani said she
believes the expansions would
have an effect on her proposed
. "Since my project is in direct
alignment with the fundamental
principles of the new direction
of the Fulbright program, I will
have more of a chance to gain
acceptance as a Fulbright schol-
ar," Sani said.
"The expansion happened
right after I applied to the pro-
gram, so ifI am not accepted this
year then I most definitely will
re-apply next year in anticipa-
tion of an increased chance of
gaining acceptance," Sani added.
Fulbright recipient and Uni-
versity alum Anna Clark, a for-
mer writer for The Michigan
Daily, will use her grant to pur-
sue a creative writing project
in Nairobi, Kenya. She said that
she thought the expansion to the
program would lead to increases
in acceptance for more students
from the University.
"Michigan has one of the best
records in the nation for its stu-
dents, alumni and faculty getting
Fulbright fellowships," she said.
"I had an excellent experience
working with the International
Institute on my application, and
I have no doubt that they will
take every opportunity they can
in making it possible for more
Michigan students to experience
According to the International
Institute website, the University
ranks first in the number of Ful-
bright grantees this year, with 39
students in 24 countries. This is
the fourth time the University
has led in the number of grants
University alum Sharief El-
Gabri, who originally applied for
an ETA grant in Egypt, received
one for Amman, Jordan. He said
that he will participate in a con-
ference in Amman in mid-Janu-
ary aimed at contributing to the
growth of the program. Gabri
said he believes the expansions
will lead to more University stu-
dents attaining fellowships.
"The expansion will most cer-
tainly lead to more Michigan
students pursuing the various
grants," he said. "It's great that
there are even more opportu-
nities to take advantage of the
Fulbright program, which is
committed to promoting under-
standing and bridging differ-
Ginger Cline, a University
alum who is pursuing an ETA in
France, said the recent expan-
sions wouldn't affect applicants
looking for grants in France as
the number available has not
"Fulbright operates on a coun-
try-by-country basis, and from
what I saw on the website, noth-
ing about the program in France
has changed," she said.
She said the expansions in the
program would mean that there
are more opportunities for Uni-
versity students, citing the addi-
tion of three new ETAs in Laos.
Benjamin Fox, a University
alum who pursued a Fulbright
Scholarship in eco-city devel-
opment in Taiwan, said that his
own proposal was wait-listed at
first. He said he was accepted to
the program when more funding
was made available. According to
Fox, expansions could result in
more acceptances of University
"Once students make it past
the first cut, they are all worthy
of receiving a grant; the number
of fellowships finally awarded
is largely predicated on how
much funding is available," Fox
said. "U of M will keep produc-
ing qualified candidates; and the
more money available, the more
