"The college experience is a
time of awakenings. We define who we are as individuals and
as professionals on our career paths. We take the tests and
write the essays, but are rarely given the opportunity to reflect
on all our experiences. Applying for the Goldwater Scholars
program provided me with that opportunity. My interests,
passions, and goals emerged from the paperwork; it was a very
fulfilling experience. The prestige of winning a Goldwater
has opened the door for highly competitive graduate programs.
Overall, as your graduation here at Texas Tech draws nearer, don't
hesitate to apply for a Goldwater and define your future goals." -
