The Goldwater Scholarship for Students Intending a PhD

Posted by Tim on August 17, 2018 in Academics, Fellowships, Graduate School Programs, Scholarship Opportunities

Are you a good candidate for the Goldwater Scholarship?  Have you been doing research and want to pursue a Ph.D.?

Anne Fortman travelled to Fermi National Accelerator to conduct research and CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland, she is now at Harvard pursuing a Ph.D.  Walker Gosrich completed an REU at the Oregon State University and is headed to Penn for his Ph.D. Andrew Stewart did summer research at Mount Sinai Health Systems researching pharmacotherapeutic approaches to addiction.  He starts there this fall in a Ph.D.

Anne, Walker and Andrew all have a few things in common.  They find answering important questions through the use of research challenging and fascinating; they all are pursuing a Ph.D.; and they were all recently recognized by the Goldwater Foundation.

Does this sound like you?  UB is seeking individuals (sophomores and juniors) with high GPA’s and research experience, who want to pursue a Ph.D. to apply for the 2019 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.

If you are interested in applying, please contact me so that we can discuss the application and selection process.
