The Goldwater Scholarship seeks to find and support the next generation of research scientists, engineers and technology specialists. Approximately two hundred Goldwater Scholarships are awarded nationally each year to sophomores and juniors planning to pursue research careers in mathematics, engineering and the sciences. Goldwater Scholars receive $7,500 for the subsequent year of undergraduate study. When determining which applicants to award, Goldwater representatives are looking for three things: academic excellence, significant research experience, and a commitment to pursuing a career in research.
