Goldwater Scholarship Informational Events - 10/17 & 10/18

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. On October 17th, attendees will receive an overview of the scholarship as well as have a chance to talk with a former Goldwater Scholarship recipient from Illinois.  On October 18th, the Scholarships Program will offer a workshop on how to write a competitive scholarship packet.  We encourage you to attend both events:
