Up to three hundred Goldwater Scholarships are awarded each year to sophomores and juniors planning to pursue careers in mathematics, engineering and the natural sciences. Goldwater Scholars receive $7500 for each of their remaining years of undergraduate studies. The scholarship confers a good deal of prestige and can greatly strengthen future fellowship and graduate school applications.

ADVISERS: Katherine Marenco, Geology Department                                                    Michelle Mancini, Undergraduate Dean's Office

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, you must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident. You must also have at least a 3.0 GPA. Eligible students will be notified at the beginning of fall semester.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION: The Goldwater Committee looks for evidence of involvement in science and for potential to carry out scientific research. Research experience is helpful but not necessary. Goldwater Scholars are expected to pursue advanced degrees. Career plans could include any research positions in the sciences. Students who plan to study medicine must plan a research career rather than a career as a clinician.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Students interested in being nominated should submit the online internal application to the Dean’s Office by 5:00pm on the listed deadline.

You will find out whether you have been selected as a nominee by early December.
