PULLMAN, Wash.—Washington State University undergraduate students Mayumi Holly and Nicole Clark have won awards from Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program, announces Mary Sanchez-Lanier, Goldwater faculty representative at WSU. Both students are seeking bachelor’s degrees from programs in the School of Molecular Biosciences (SMB), part of the College of Veterinary Medicine.
“It’s a pleasure to work with WSU students as they seek the Goldwater awards,” says Sanchez-Lanier. “WSU places a strong emphasis on educating students in the STEM disciplines, and Goldwater applicants are top scholars who plan to seek graduate degrees and build careers in those fields.” STEM refers to “science, technology, engineering, and math.”
