Ford wins Goldwater Scholarship

Friday, April 21 2023

Dawn Ford, a third-year physics major, has won a 2023 Goldwater Scholarship, one of the most prestigious undergraduate scholarships in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering in America. 

From UVAToday:

The scholarship program honors Sen. Barry Goldwater, and was designed to foster and encourage students to pursue research careers in natural sciences, engineering and mathematics. Each Goldwater Scholar annually receives an amount equal to the cost of tuition, mandatory fees, books and room and board, minus the amount of support provided for by other sources, up to a maximum of $7,500 per full academic year.

Ford said receiving a Goldwater Scholarship is an acknowledgement of her drive and research output over these past few years.
