Loyola announcement - March 28, 2005

(New Orleans)—Chemistry and biological science double major Ryan M. Ivie was awarded a Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. The 2005-2006 scholarships were awarded to 320 sophomores and juniors from the United States. From a field of 1,091 mathematics, science, and engineering majors, the students were chosen on the basis of academic merit, and nominated by faculties of colleges and universities nationwide. The scholarships will cover tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year.

Ivie’s career goal is to conduct research employing the tools of molecular biology in order to positively contribute to the understanding of human pathology.

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry M. Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years in the U.S. Senate. The purpose of the foundation is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by awarding scholarships to college students who intend to pursue careers in these fields.
