Brennan Coffey, an undergraduate student double majoring in chemical engineering and applied mathematics, is one of only three CU students to be named a 2014 Goldwater Scholar.
Goldwater Scholarships are awarded nationally to those who have outstanding potential and intend to pursue research careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering. Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for undergraduate tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually.
Coffey currently conducts research in the laboratory of Professor Dan Schwartz. He plans on obtaining a Ph.D in Materials Engineering, after which he would like to teach at the university level while researching material interfaces related to pharmaceutical technology and bioengineering.
