Samuel Joseph Endicott, a William Jewell College Oxbridge science major from Harrisonville, Mo., has been selected to receive the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for 2009. In addition, Jessica Schwalm, a junior biology and Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry major from Fort Scott, Kan., has been named an Honorable Mention in the annual scholarship competition.

Endicott was selected on the basis of academic merit and scientific research potential from a field of more than 1,000 mathematics, science and engineering students who were nominated by the faculties of colleges and universities nationwide. The Goldwater Scholarship is the premiere undergraduate award of its type in these fields. The scholarships cover the cost of tuition, fees, books and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year.

Goldwater trustees awarded 278 scholarships for the 2009–2010 academic year to undergraduate sophomores and juniors from throughout the United States. One hundred sixty-three of the Scholars are men, 115 are women, and virtually all intend to obtain a Ph.D. as their degree objective. Thirty Scholars are mathematics majors, 190 are science and related majors, 51 are majoring in engineering, and 7 are computer science majors. Many of the Scholars have dual majors in a variety of mathematics, science, engineering, and computer disciplines.

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry M. Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate. The purpose of the Foundation is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by awarding scholarships to college students who intend to pursue careers in these fields.

Goldwater Scholars have impressive academic qualifications that have garnered the attention of prestigious post-graduate fellowship programs. Recent Goldwater Scholars have been awarded 73 Rhodes Scholarships, 102 Marshall Awards (7 of the 40 awarded in the United States in 2009), and numerous other distinguished fellowships. In its twenty-one-year history, the Foundation has awarded 5,801 scholarships worth approximately $56 million.
