Junior River Jordan, a neuroscience major, recently took honorable mention in the prestigious Barry Goldwater Scholarship National Competition. The competition, which is entirely online, targets students who are passionate about carrying out scientific research. To apply, students must be nominated by a mentor (a professor, physician, principle investigator, or medical scientist whom the applicant works with directly) and then write an essay explaining research that they’ve been conducting. Out of the 1,500 students who enter, 100 are awarded scholarships, and 100 are awarded Honorable Mention. Inside Moravian met with Jordan to learn more about the competition and his interest in science.
