The prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships are awarded to recognize outstanding students who are interested in research careers in mathematics, natural sciences, or engineering. This year one of our BCMB majors, sophomore Madelyn Crawford, was among three scholars named at UT. Crawford will receive the Goldwater Scholarship for her remaining two years at UT. Crawford is a Farragut native who was highly recruited to UT as a member of both the Chancellor’s Honors and Haslam Scholars Programs. She has been pursuing independent research in the laboratory of microbiologist Jeff Becker. Read the article on the three UT Goldwater Scholars for 2011 in Tennessee Today.
