The Goldwater Scholarship is the premiere undergraduate award granted to mathematics, natural sciences and engineering students interested in research careers. The program aims to provide the world with an ample selection of qualified scholars and researchers.

Students are evaluated based on academic merit, research experience and career objectives. Ms. Sweet intends to pursue a Ph.D. in biochemical engineering and to ultimately conduct research and teach at a major research university.

Ms. Sweet credited her success to a Clark School professor and mentor. She declared her "research experience with Dr. Mohamad Al-Sheikhly (associate professor of materials science and engineering) as the determining factor in my decision to pursue a Ph.D. in chemical engineering."
