Goldwater Scholarship Information Session
Mr. Jeff Wing, Director of the National Scholarship Office, will be holding an information session about the Goldwater Scholarship on Tuesday, September 18 from 1-2pm in Room 1303 at The Honors College (701 W. Grace Street).
The Goldwater Scholarship recognizes students who are pursuing undergraduate degrees in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) and intend to pursue research-oriented careers in these fields.
Competitive Goldwater candidates will be strong students (GPA > 3.7), will already have research experience, and will have a plan for pursuing graduate education that will lead to a career as a research scientist, engineer or mathematician.
Since 2007, eight VCU undergraduates have been selected as Goldwater Scholars. They have pursued or are presently pursuing graduate degrees at Johns Hopkins, UCLA, Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, Harvard and Oxford among others. Other nominees who were not selected as Goldwater Scholars have also gone on to pursue graduate degrees at top graduate institutions.
