Nathan Shively ’07 was among 320 students chosen from across the nation to receive Goldwater scholarships for the 2005-06 academic year. Goldwater Scholars, who are selected based on academic merit, receive a maximum of $7,500 yearly to cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board.
Shively, a biochemistry major, is a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, the Honor Committee and the Chemii Club, and is a participant in intramural bowling and club volleyball. A Distinguished Alden Scholar and a Doane Scholar, he was awarded the Chemical Rubber Company Freshman Achievement Award.
He is also a member of the Lambda Sigma Honor Society. This summer he completed a ten-week research internship at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Goldwater scholarship program, which honors the late senator Barry M. Goldwater, was designed to encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering.
