Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship was created to support students with outstanding potential in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering who plan careers as researchers in those fields. Students interested in medicine are eligible only if they intend to have a research career. Students can apply as a sophomore or as a junior; it pays up to $7,500 a year for the junior and senior years (if won as a junior, the scholarship covers only the senior year). Usually 300 scholarships are awarded a year.

Qualifications: be a sophomore or junior majoring in the natural sciences, engineering, or mathematics; have at least a B average and be in the top 25% of your class; be a U. S. citizen. University nomination is required.
