College of Charleston students Erica Tracey and Brenna Norton-Baker were selected as 2013 Goldwater Scholars from a field of more than 1,100 applicants. Goldwater Scholars were selected on the basis of academic merit from a field of mathematics, science, and engineering students who were nominated by the faculties of colleges and universities nationwide. Virtually all intend to obtain a Ph.D.
“Being awarded a Goldwater Scholarship is often the first in a string of prestigious recognitions,” the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation notes. “Recent Goldwater Scholars have been awarded 80 Rhodes Scholarships, 118 Marshall Awards, 110 Churchill Scholarships and numerous other distinguished fellowships.”
