Goldwater Ambassadors

Are you interested in a research-intensive STEM career? Looking for some guidance on career options, applying for prestigious awards such as the Goldwater scholarship, and more? Join the Goldwater Ambassadors program!

The Goldwater Ambassadors program provides one-on-one STEM mentorship and resources to undergraduate STEM students, especially those who are from schools or demographics underrepresented among Goldwater Scholars.

While the Ambassadors program is open to all students, we are particularly interested in working with first-, second-, and third-year students who come from groups who are underrepresented in STEM and with students, who because of various life challenges, may not have had access to the same educational and research experiences as others. Many participants in this program meet one or more of the following criteria: member of an under-represented group in STEM, attend an institution with limited access to research or a community college, have experienced economic hardship, have a disability, face a geographic barrier to education/research, or experience other circumstances which have limited their ability to conduct STEM research.

If you still have questions, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for more details about the Ambassadors program.

Please fill out the form below to be considered, and if selected, you will be matched with a Goldwater scholar who will provide you with one-on-one STEM mentorship that meets your specific needs.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis:

Goldwater Ambassadors is an initiative of the Goldwater Scholar Council’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which aims to support underrepresented and underserved students, especially those from Community Colleges and Minority Serving Institutions, to pursue STEM research careers.
