About

Established by legislation in 1986, the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship encourages students to pursue careers in the natural sciences (Astronomy, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, Microbiology, Neuroscience, Physics), Mathematics and Engineering.. Each scholarship covers tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually. Current juniors are eligible for one year of support; current sophomores are eligible for two  years of support.

Candidates must:

  • Receive a nomination by his/her accredited institution
  • Be a current full-time sophomore or junior
  • Intend to pursue a research career in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering.
  • Have at least a 3.000 GPA and be in the upper fourth of his/her class
  • Be a United States Citizen, resident alien or U.S. national

Successful nominees have had College GPAs of 3.900 or higher.

Application/Nomination Process: The Goldwater Foundation does NOT accept direct student applications for this award. Students must register with and pick up application materials from the College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Academic Affairs Office (Owen Hall 102/104) The College holds an internal competition to select nominees for the national Goldwater competition and The Foundation selects approximately 300 winners each year from all over the United States.

All materials, (some electronic, some on paper), must be received by the College of Arts and Sciences by the application deadline. Details available here.
