Elizabeth Bondi, a third year student in Imaging Science, has been named a Goldwater Scholar for 2015. Liz's history with CIS extends back to 2011 when she was a high school summer intern. Most recently she completed an internship at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Liz's career goals are to obtain a Ph.D. in Imaging Science, conduct research in computer vision, and teach at the university level.

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was authorized by the United States Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate. 

Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for undergraduate tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually. Goldwater Scholars must be sophomores or juniors during the 2014-2015 academic year and intend to pursue research careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering.
