Letters of recommendation are the most important component to an application, next to the essays written by the candidates. Take a look at our referee guidelines for the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.
The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Program was created to encourage outstanding sophomore and junior students to pursue careers in mathematics, the natural sciences or engineering, and to foster excellence in those fields. In awarding scholarships, the Foundation Board of Trustees will consider the nominee's field of study and career objectives and the extent to which that individual has the commitment and potential to make a significant contribution to his or her field.
We ask that you submit a letter of the recommendation for the purposes of the campus nominating committee. Please be advised that the campus review committee may ask you for clarifications or to correct typological errors prior to submitting your official letter.
Please email the letter to Elizabeth Colucci (email@example.com) by Nov. 1.
