NMSU Goldwater Scholar Testimonial
Redman was selected from a pool of more than 1,100 mathematics, science and engineering students nominated for the scholarship. Fewer than 275 students from across the nation were awarded Goldwater Scholarships.
“The Goldwater scholarship is specific to the STEM fields, and the fact that we’ve had recent success shows we have some outstanding students who are beginning to receive national recognition,” Mark Andersen, director of the Office of National Scholarships who assisted Redman in her application, said. “NMSU is a wonderful training ground for students in the STEM field.”
For Redman, one of the coolest parts of the award was seeing her name among the other scholars at some of the country’s top universities.
“It’s awesome to put NMSU’s name out there with all those other programs and show that you don’t have to spend a life savings on school to do well,” Redman said.
As Redman was a Sophomore when she received the Goldwater Scholarship, she was awarded her cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually for two academic years.
