In a first for Clemson University, five students were selected this year for the prestigious 2024 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, which recognizes students who show exceptional promise of advancing research in mathematics, natural sciences and engineering.

Biochemistry majors Caroline Argenti and Adam Gatch, physics major Maggie Marte, mathematical sciences major Cody Waters and bioengineering major Audrey Wessinger are among 438 scholars selected nationwide.

“We congratulate Caroline, Adam, Maggie, Cody and Audrey on the contributions each is making through research, service and leadership to transform lives in South Carolina and beyond,” said Clemson University’s Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Robert H. Jones. “The fact that five Clemson students were selected as Goldwater Scholars this year is a testament to our University’s commitment to undergraduate research ascension and faculty mentoring.”

Clemson is one of only eight institutions to have five scholars selected this year. The announcement brings Clemson’s total number of Goldwater scholars selected since the program’s inception to 63.

The University leads the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) with 47 scholars since 2006.
