Physics Students Win Goldwater Scholarships

March 21, 2014

Congratulations to Gregory Allan (Electrical Engineering/Physics) and Tushar Swamy (Electrical Engineering/Physics) who have been awarded Goldwater Scholarships this year.

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate.

The purpose of the Foundation is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by awarding scholarships to college students who intend to pursue research careers in these fields.
