Award: Up to $7,500 annually, which can be used towards tuition, fees, books, and room and board. Sophomore applicants are eligible for a maximum of two years of scholarship support, although yearly awards are non-transferable and must be used in full in the designated year.


Eligibility: Applicants must be US citizens or nationals, and full-time sophomores or juniors pursuing a bachelor's degree in the broad fields of Engineering, Mathematics, or the Natural Sciences. Those who plan to study medicine are eligible only if they intend a career in research (rather than medical practice). Further, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be in the top quarter of their class.


When to Apply: The institutional due date is November 21, 2011.


In 1985, the US Congress established the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program in order to encourage outstanding students to pursue careers as scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Each year, the Program grants up to 300 scholarships to highly qualified individuals so they may continue their study of engineering, mathematics, or the natural sciences. Applicants must not only show evidence of academic excellence, but also demonstrate a commitment to their chosen field and be able to clearly articulate their future career plans and their potential to make a significant contribution to this field.
