Goldwater Scholarship Informational Events 10/15 & 10/16

Dear students,

Are you a sophomore or junior in a STEM discipline that aims to pursue a Ph.D. in your field?  Do you already have research experience and strong academic performance? 

If so, you may be interested in applying for the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.  

The National and International Scholarships program will be hosting a two-day informational event for students to learn more about this opportunity. At our information session, attendees will receive an overview of the scholarship as well as have a chance to talk with a former Goldwater Scholarship recipient from Illinois.  At the writing workshop, the Scholarships Program will offer tips on how to write a competitive scholarship packet.  We encourage you to attend both events:
