More Info

The Goldwater Scholarship is one of the most desirable undergraduate awards. Scholars continue after the bachelor's to win such prestigious fellowships as NSF, NDSEG, and the Hertz. Please note that Northwestern may only forward four candidates.

Sophomores and juniors in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering are eligible to apply.

Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for undergraduate tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually. Scholarship monies not used during one academic year are not transferable to the succeeding academic year. Junior-level scholarship recipients are eligible for a maximum of two years of scholarship support, and senior-level scholarship recipients are eligible for a maximum of one year of scholarship support. Scholars may opt to study abroad, but their Goldwater funding will be based on their U.S. institution's budget.
