Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship
Through the Congressional Memorial to Senator Barry Goldwater, these scholarships were created to encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering and to foster excellence in those fields. The scholarship provides two years of funding to juniors or one year to seniors pursuing careers in research.
Eligibility: The College can nominate up to four students each year. Sophomores or junior who are American citizens, who have a “B” average and are in the top quarter of their class may seek nomination.
Selection Process: The application consists of a nominee information form, an essay on an important issue in the nominee’s field of study, a secondary school report, three letters of recommendation and a transcript. The written materials are evaluated by a state committee, which designates finalists, with final selections made by the Goldwater Board of Trustees.
