Goldwater Scholarships at Clarkson University

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship is the most prestigious award in the U.S. conferred upon undergraduates studying the sciences, mathematics and engineering. 

See: http://www.act.org/goldwater/

This year, 2014, is the 15th consecutive year that Clarkson Honors Program students have received Goldwater Scholarships. Including this year’s scholar, 30 Clarkson University students have received this highly coveted award since the scholarships were established in 1986.

No college or university in New York has had more Goldwater Scholars in the past three years than Clarkson University. Of more than 4,000 institutions nationwide, Clarkson is in the top one percent for the number of Goldwater Scholars in the past five years.
