Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Program - #85.200

Direct Payments For Specified Use.




$0 to $7,500; $6,650.

To be eligible to receive payments, a Goldwater Scholar must submit in writing: (1) An acceptance of the scholarship award, (2) an EFT form for payment by direct deposit and (3) at the beginning of each academic year one payment request form outlining the costs of tuition, fees, books, room and board, additional expenses and any other scholarships the student is receiving for that academic year. This form must be certified by a financial aid official and an academic official certifying that the student is in good academic standing. Two payments via treasury EFT will be made to the scholar's account during the academic year in an amount equal to half of the amount for which the scholar qualifies on the payment request, not to exceed $7,500 per academic year.

It is the intent of the Foundation to support junior- level scholarships for a maximum of 2 academic years and senior-level scholarships for a maximum of 1 academic year. Renewal for junior- level awards will be in accordance with the regulations established by the Foundation Board of Trustees and will be subject to an annual review by an authorized official of the institution. The scholar must be a full- time student and taking a course of study, training, or other educational activities to prepare for a career in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering. The scholar must not be engaged in gainful employment that interferes with the scholar's studies. The scholar must be in good academic standing. The scholar may seek postponement of his or her award because of ill health or other mitigating circumstances, upon application to the President.
