Bruce Enzmann Receives Goldwater Scholarship

Mao lab undergraduate student Bruce Enzmann has been selected as a Goldwater Scholar. Established in 1986, the Goldwater Scholarship was one of the first significant national scholarships focusing on STEM fields. The program awards winners $7,500 for tuition, fees, books, and room and board. The national recognition has also been known to give students a competitive edge when pursuing graduate fellowships in their fields, as the Goldwater Scholarship website notes: “Goldwater Scholars have been awarded 94 Rhodes Scholarships, 150 Marshall Scholarships, 170 Churchill Scholarships, 109 Hertz Fellowships, and numerous other distinguished awards like the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships.”

Schools nominate up to four students from a pool of sophomores and juniors, selected for their research record and potential for leadership in STEM fields. (source: The Hub and The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation)
