The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program

Summary

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 2018-19, and one-year scholarships for those who will be seniors.   Applicants must be full-time sophomores or juniors during 2017-18; 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.  About 300 scholarships are granted per year nationwide. The application process has three steps.   First, students pre-apply on the Goldwater Scholarship website, and the pre-applications are screened for eligibility by the campus representative.  Second, full applications are evaluated within a UAF review process.  Third, up to 4 students will be officially nominated for the the national Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation competition.    The UAF faculty representative is responsible for leading the within-UAF review, nominating students to Goldwater, and sending in all supporting documents, so applicants should stay in contact with the faculty representative throughout the application process.
