Three UI students named Goldwater Scholars
On April 26, 2019, University of Iowa undergraduates Hannah Gulick, Russell Martin, and Guowei Qi got some great news. After making it through an extra four weeks of anticipation, each learned that they had been named 2019 Goldwater Scholars.
The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship - the premier undergraduate award of its kind - was established by Congress in 1986 in honor of Senator Barry M. Goldwater, to challenge and support outstanding young scholar researchers committed to conducting basic science research in the fields of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering. Since 1989, 57 undergraduates from the University of Iowa have been named Goldwater Scholars.
