"The Goldwater scholarship is one of the few scholarships in the nation that is specifically awarded to students who plan to pursue graduate study and a research career in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics field … which makes this scholarship an excellent opportunity to distinguish one's self as a future academic and/or scientist on a national scale."
