The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program
Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation will award up to $7500/year to undergraduate science and mathematics students for their last one to two years of undergraduate study. There are two-year scholarships for those who will be juniors in 2017-18, and one-year scholarships for those who will be seniors. Applicants must be full-time sophomores or juniors during 2016-17; be planning a research career in science, mathematics, or engineering; have at least a 3.0 GPA; and be a US citizen, resident alien, or US national. The application process has two steps. First, there will be an internal review process, after which up to 4 students will be officially nominated for the scholarship. Second, the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation will select approximately 300 applicants nationwide. The UAF faculty representative is responsible for nominating students and mailing in the supporting documents, so applicants should stay in contact with the faculty representative throughout the application process.
