3 College Students Named Goldwater Scholars

Three third-year students in the College have been named Barry Goldwater Scholars and will receive grants to pursue research careers in science, mathematics and engineering.

Benjamin Lowe, Seth Musser and Jonathan Sorce were nominated by the University and selected from a field of 1,150 applicants, representing 415 colleges and universities nationwide. The prestigious one- and two-year scholarships cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to $7,500 per year.

“This is a clear indication that our STEM-focused students exhibit levels of creativity and dedication that shine through their plans for future research initiatives,” said John W. Boyer, dean of the College and the Martin A. Ryerson Distinguished Service Professor in History and the College. “We are very proud, yet not surprised, that the Barry Goldwater Scholarship program sees such promise in Ben, Seth and Jon.”
