Chemistry major Sojung Kim has been named a 2019 Goldwater Scholar!

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship is the most prestigious undergraduate scholarship given in the natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics.  Each year, it is awarded to approximately three hundred college sophomores and juniors nationwide.

“Being named a Goldwater Scholar helped confirm my skills and potential as a young researcher,” Kim explains, “receiving this award gives me more confidence to pursue a research career in chemistry.”

Kim, who is a junior in the chemistry major, is one of the four awardees from Penn State. She conducted research with Professor Tom Mallouk before joining the Zhang lab last fall, where she co-authored a paper in ChemBioChem in 2019.

Please join the Department of Chemistry in congratulating Sojung Kim on this exciting honor.
