Tyler Merz-Jake Conners

Two Physics Majors Win Goldwater Scholarships

Congratulations to Jake Connors (left) and Tyler Merz (right) for winning 2010 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships. Three Ohio State students were named winners on March 31, and two of them are Physics students.

Jake Connors, a junior majoring in Physics, is conducting research with Dr. Richard Hughes and Dr. Brian Winer and plans to conduct research in high energy physics as a faculty member at the university level.

Tyler Merz, a junior majoring in Engineering Physics, is conducting research under Dr. Leonard Brillson and plans to pursue a career researching novel electronic materials in industry or at a government laboratory.

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986. Its goal 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.

The Scholarship is widely considered the most prestigious award in the U.S. conferred upon undergraduates studying the sciences. It is

awarded to about 300 students (college sophomores and juniors) nationwide in the amount of $7500.

The Goldwater Scholarship is awarded to outstanding undergraduates in science, math, and engineering. A full listing of winners and the

official press release can be found on the Goldwater's website.
