King named Goldwater Scholar

Student named Goldwater Scholar

Dylan King, a sophomore mathematics and computer science major from Walnut Cove, N.C., has been named a 2018 Barry S. Goldwater Scholar. King was selected as one of 211 students from around the country to receive the award for the 2018-19 academic year.

King was selected for the Goldwater Scholarship based on academic merit from a field of 1280 natural sciences, mathematics and engineering students from 455 institutions.

The scholarship will cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500 per year.

“I have a burning passion for mathematics,” said King, who is a Reynolds Scholar at Wake Forest and plans to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics. “Winning the Goldwater will support me financially as I continue to learn, while asking (and hopefully answering) tough research questions.”
