Four BYU undergraduates named Goldwater Scholars

Four Brigham Young University students recently received the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for the 2006-07 school year.

The four recipients included Jacqualine D. Jackson, a physics major from Anchorage, Alaska; Adam H. Broderick, a chemical engineering major from Danville, Calif.; Bryan T. Haslam, an electrical engineering major from San Diego, Calif. and Sterling J. Anderson, a mechanical engineering major from Declo, Idaho.

The Goldwater Scholarship is the premier undergraduate award of its type in the fields of science, mathematics and engineering, garnering the attention of prestigious post-graduate fellowship programs.

“The fact that our students are competing well for these national awards says that we have good quality students who are receiving good training here at BYU,” said Randall Shirts, Goldwater Scholar faculty coach.

Shirts added that the university is only allowed to nominate four candidates for the scholarship each year, and all four nominated received the scholarship.

The scholarship covers the cost of tuition, fees, books and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year of undergraduate education.

More than 300 Goldwater Scholarships were awarded nationwide for the 2006-07 academic years to undergraduate sophomores and juniors.

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, who served for 30 years in the U.S. Senate.
