By providing scholarships to college sophomores and juniors who intend to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, mathematics and engineering, the Goldwater Foundation is helping ensure that the . is producing the number of highly-qualified professionals the Nation needs in these critical fields. Over its 30-year history, Goldwater Scholarships have been awarded to thousands of undergraduates, many of whom have gone on to win other prestigious awards like the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship, Churchill Scholarship and the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship that support our Scholars’ graduate school work. Today, Goldwater alumni can be found conducting research that is helping defend the Nation, finding cures for catastrophic diseases and teaching future generations of scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
The Stout University Foundation sponsors scholarships for degree seeking undergraduate and graduate students through a highly competitive process. Foundation scholarships are financed by the contributions of alumni, friends, parents, faculty, campus organizations, other Stout staff, foundations and corporations. More than $650,000 is awarded annually for the benefit of UW-Stout students. There is always a need for more scholarships for UW-Stout students and permanent scholarship funds may be established in the Foundation through bequests or special gifts. All gifts to the Stout University Foundation are tax deductible.
