“[Thesis process] has been an incredibly fulfilling experience that challenged me to do more than I thought I could and allowed me to see not only my topic but also myself from a new perspective.”

Scholarship Spotlight

Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship

http://www.act.org/goldwater

The purpose of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, as stated in the enabling legislation, is to alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. A more realistic statement of the purpose, in today's terms, is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified individuals to those fields of academic study and research.
