Description

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Program was created to provide a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by awarding scholarships to college students who intend to pursue research careers in these fields.  Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually - to be used during your following year as an undergraduate.

Eligibility

Students are eligible in both their sophomore and junior years.  They must have outstanding potential and intend to pursue careers in math, the natural sciences, or engineering. Eligible students must have GPAs placing them in the upper 25% of their class.  They must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens. Students who plan to study medicine are eligible ONLY if they plan a research career rather than a career as a medical doctor in a private practice.  While the most competitive applicants will be those with existing research experience, prior research is not a requirement of the program.

Selection Criteria

The Fellowships and Awards Committee may nominate up to four students. Following submission of the applications, an independent review committee appointed by the Goldwater Scholarship Program will evaluate all nominations and recommend the most outstanding nominees from each state for consideration by the Foundation Board of Trustees.

Nominees are evaluated on demonstrated potential for and commitment to a research career in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering and outstanding academic performance.

From among the candidates recommended by the independent review committee, the Board of Trustees will name up to 300 Barry M. Goldwater Scholars. The number of scholarships to be awarded per state will depend on the number and qualifications of the nominees from the 53 jurisdictions.

Application Procedure

Interested students should use this form to request an internal application.  Contact Michelle Johnson with any questions.
