D'Juan Moreland receives Goldwater Scholarship

D'Juan Moreland, music composition and biological sciences major, was named a 2022-2023 Goldwater Scholar. He was one of four UMBC students to receive this prestigious scholarship, tying the University's past record, and giving UMBC more winners this year than any other institution in the state of Maryland.

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program is designed to provide the United States with "a continuing source of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers" to move the nation forward. More than 1,200 students applied from over 425 institutions across the country this year. The program selected a total of 417 scholars to receive Goldwater scholarships for 2022-23. 

Goldwater Scholars each receive substantial scholarship funding that advances their undergraduate work and educational paths. The program focuses on students pursuing research, and many past scholars have published and presented their work as early as their undergraduate years.
