Goldwater Scholarship Info Sessions

August 1, 2013

Some details on the Goldwater.

The Goldwater Scholarship is a highly prestigious national award that recognizes the nation’s top undergraduates in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math fields. Goldwater Scholars receive up to $10,000/year for their final year or two of undergraduate study, and are well-positioned for graduate school applications and awards.

A student must be nominated by their home institution to apply for the Goldwater Scholarship. At Drexel, we hold an open campus competition for those four nomination spots; the required pre-application deadline is October 25th.
