Chemistry professor Lisa Prevette and incoming freshman Jack Queenan pose for a photo in an Owens Science Hall lab on July 27, 2017 in St. Paul. Jack is a recent Minnetonka high school graduate who has been doing chemistry research with Lisa Prevette's lab since last year. This year he is leading his own research project where he's creating nanoparticles that will dissolve when in an acidic environment and will eventually be used to deliver insulin to the bodies of diabetics.

Two Students Selected for Goldwater Scholarships

Two students from the College of Arts and Sciences were selected as recipients of the Goldwater Scholarship this year. Maria Neuzil ’20 (physics and mathematics) and Jack Queenan ’21 (chemistry and mathematics) were selected out of a competitive national pool of student scholars for these awards.

The Goldwater Scholarship Program is one of the oldest and most prestigious national scholarships in the natural sciences, engineering and mathematics in the United States. The program seeks to identify and support college sophomores and juniors who show exceptional promise of becoming this nation’s next generation of research leaders in these fields.
