Sweet Success for Clark School Goldwater Scholarship Winner
Debbie Sweet, a junior chemical engineering major, is one of three University of Maryland recipients of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.
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."
