Nominate Rising Juniors and Seniors for Math, Science, and Engineering Scholarship ($7,500)- Deadline 1/31/2008



The Foundation will award undergraduate scholarships to outstanding
students, to be known as Barry M. Goldwater Scholars, in the spring of
2008 for use during the 2008-2009 academic year. The awards will be
made on the basis of merit to two groups of students — those who will
be college juniors and those who will be college seniors in the
2008-2009 academic year — who have outstanding potential and intend
to pursue careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or
engineering. Four-year institutions are eligible to nominate up to
four students who are in the sophomore or junior class during the
2007-2008 academic year. Two-year institutions may nominate up to two
students who are sophomores during the 2007-2008 academic year. To be
considered, a student must be nominated by his or her college or
university using the official nomination materials available to each
institution on the Foundation’s website.

Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for undergraduate tuition,
fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually.
Scholarship monies not used during one academic year are not
transferable to the succeeding academic year. Junior-level scholarship
recipients are eligible for a maximum of two years of scholarship
support, and senior-level scholarship recipients are eligible for a
maximum of one year of scholarship support.

The Trustees intend to award up to 300 Goldwater Scholarships. The
number of scholarships to be awarded per state will depend on the
number and qualifications of the nominees from the 50 states, the
District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and, considered as a single entity,
Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the
Northern Mariana Islands.
