This is the official website for both the Goldwater Scholar Community (GSC) and the Barry Goldwater Educational Support Fund (BGESF). Both organizations support past, present, and future Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship winners, which is awarded by the Goldwater Foundation.
The GSC is a Scholar-founded and Scholar-led organization with the mission of bringing together Goldwater awardees and honorable mentions. Since 2018, we have launched initiatives to connect Scholars through networking, mentorship, digital publicity, activism, and social engagement.
The BGESF was established to support fundraising efforts to increase the number of Goldwater Scholars named annually. The BGESF is also actively supporting the financial needs of the GSC to implement their programming.
