Scholarships for Math, Science and Engineering students!

Date: The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship

Description:

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship program awards over 300 scholarships annually of up to $7,500/year to upcoming juniors and seniors with interests in pursuing careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering and to foster excellence in those fields.

Successful candidates typically plan to pursue Ph.D. degrees and have experience in research. This scholarship program was established by the U.S. Congress in 1986 to "help alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers."

Each University may nominate only 4 students to the national competition.   Rowan had multiple Goldwater Scholars and honorable mentions in past years! 

The Rowan University internal deadline is December 2, 2013.  Student applications to the national committee are due January 28, 2014.
