Honors College Student Earns National STEM Scholarship
Gabriel Moreau, an Honors College senior majoring in physics in Lyman Briggs College and music in the College of Music, was named a recipient of the nationally competitive Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.
The Goldwater Foundation seeks scholars committed to a career in science, mathematics, or engineering who display intellectual intensity and who have the potential for significant future contribution in their chosen field, providing them with funding for undergraduate tuition and living expenses.
Moreau is the 44th Goldwater Scholar from MSU since Congress established the scholarship program in 1986. Moreau holds U.S. and French citizenship and graduated from Lycée Vauvenargues in Aix-en-Provence, France.
He is a research assistant at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and previously worked as a research assistant for Professor Oscar Naviliat-Cuncic in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Both were related to research in nuclear physics.
“The Goldwater Scholarship is not only an incredible honor – it is an immense opportunity for me,” Moreau said.
