Story posted May 06, 2003

William L. Klemm 04 of Melrose, Mass., has been awarded a Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.

The Scholarship, honoring Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, was designed to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. It is the premier undergraduate award of its type in these fields.

Klemm, who is majoring in physics at Bowdoin, plans to pursue his Ph.D. in theoretical physics. His goal is to become a professor of theoretical physics and conduct research.

Klemm is a two-time Sarah and James Bowdoin Book Award winner, and last year received a James Stacy Coles Summer Research Fellowship.

Goldwater Scholars were selected on the basis of academic merit from a field of 1,093 candidates. The scholarship award of $7,500 helps cover cost of tuition, fees, books and room and board.

The Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation awarded a total of 300 scholarships for the 2003-04 academic year to undergraduate sophomores and juniors.
