A Bozeman native who caught the chemistry bug from his father is the latest Montana State University student to win a prestigious Goldwater Scholarship.

David Halat, a junior in chemistry and mathematics, is the 54th MSU student to win the nation’s premier scholarship for undergraduates studying math, natural sciences and engineering since the Goldwater Foundation was established in 1986. Keeping MSU one of the nation’s top institutions for Goldwater recipients, Halat’s scholarship gives him up to $7,500 a year for tuition, fees, books, and room and board.

“I’ve had so much homework that I haven’t had a chance to celebrate, but it’s really exciting,” Halat said shortly after learning about his scholarship.

Three MSU students also won honorable mentions this year. They were Brian Redman of Crane, electrical engineering; Bryan Vadheim of Miles City, chemical engineering and economics; and chemistry major Nels Gerstner of Fort Collins, Colo. Among other institutions that won 2012 Goldwaters were Yale University with three, Harvard University with two and Princeton University with two.
