Goldwater Scholarship Foundation honors UAB students
Two students were named 2014 Goldwater Scholars by the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship in Excellence in Education Foundation. A third UAB student earned an honorable mention.
The 2014 Goldwater Scholars from UAB are Bliss Chang, a junior with a double-major in biochemistry and biology, and Ophelia Johnson, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. Luke McClintock, a sophomore chemistry major, received an honorable mention.
Chang and Johnson were selected from a pool of more than 1,100 student applicants. UAB’s two scholars are among just 283 students who received the award nationwide. The scholars were selected based on their academic achievements outlined in the nominations submitted by faculty members. To date, UAB has had 19 Goldwater Scholars.
The Goldwater scholarship program began in 1989 with the purpose of encouraging outstanding students to pursue careers in engineering, mathematics and the natural sciences. The foundation grants each recipient a scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year that covers the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year.
