BGSU biology major wins prestigious Goldwater Scholarship

Eavesdropping isn’t the most admirable trait in the human realm, but in a crayfish’s watery world, it may just help the offender survive.

That’s what Jennifer Chaffin is trying to find out in her research as a biology major at BGSU. And next year, as a senior, she’ll do it with the help of a recently awarded Goldwater Scholarship, an academic-based honor that pays up to $7,500 per year for tuition and fees, books, and room and board.

Chaffin, who has a 4.0 grade point average, is one of 278 Goldwater Scholarship recipients for the 2009-10 academic year. Those sophomores and juniors are among 1,097 science, engineering and mathematics students who were nominated by faculty at their institutions nationwide.
