April 15, 2013
Two HHC students have been awarded Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships, which are presented to the country's most promising undergraduate college students in math, science and engineering.
Both recipients, Benjamin Allan Seitzman and Jordan M. Venderley, are juniors with double majors who plan to earn doctorates in their fields. Seitzman majors in mathematics and neuroscience. He says his career goal is to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience, conduct research and teach at the university level. Venderley majors in chemistry and mathematics. He plans to earn a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry, conduct research and teach at the university level.
The two were among 271 students selected from a field of 1,107 mathematics, science and engineering students to receive the scholarships from the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation.
Established by the United States Congress in 1986 in honor of former U.S. senator and 1964 presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, the goal of the foundation is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians and engineers by awarding scholarships to college students who intend to pursue careers in these fields.
The award provides recipients up to $7,500 per year toward tuition, fees, books, and room and board.
