Goldwater Science Scholarships

Posted on June 13, 2007  Comments (2)

I have mentioned previously, I work for ASEE (the curious cat blog is not associated with ASEE). At ASEE, we have started a science and engineering fellowship blog. The latest post covers the Goldwater Science Scholarships – for undergraduate students in science and math. Approximately 300 are awarded each year.

For 2007, 28 mathematics majors, 223 science and related majors, 54 engineering majors, and 12 computer science majors received awards (many of the Scholars have dual majors in a variety of mathematics, science, engineering, and computer disciplines). The one and two year scholarships will cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year.

The Goldwater Foundation is a federally endowed agency established by Public Law 99-661 on November 14, 1986. The Scholarship Program honoring Senator Barry M. Goldwater was designed to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Applications will be available starting in September for next year. Schools nominate up to 4 students for the scholarship, see the web site for details on the application process.

    The Goldwater fellowship is certainly a *great* step in the right direction, but given the tuition at a private college these days, $7,500/year is a mere drop of water in the ocean… It would be interesting to know why the Marshall and Fulbright foundations are able to spend so much more money – would it be better to give more money to less students to raise the visibility of the fellowships?
    Thanks for the links on how to win graduate fellowships and the advice on applying for science and engineering scholarships – I will make sure my students are aware of those!
