Sec. 4701. Findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Senator Barry Goldwater of the State of Arizona has served

his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including

service in the United States Senate for a period of 30 years.

(2) Senator Goldwater has a distinguished record as a Senator,

including service as Chairman of the Select Committee on

Intelligence of the Senate and as Chairman of the Committee on

Armed Services of the Senate.

(3) Senator Goldwater has long maintained a special interest in

the education of America's youth, particularly in the fields of

science and mathematics.

(4) It would, therefore, be a fitting tribute to the

leadership, courage, and vision of Senator Goldwater to establish

in his name a scholarship program to foster and encourage

excellence in science and mathematics.

Fund

-STATUTE-

(a) Establishment of fund

There is established in the Treasury of the United States a trust

fund to be known as the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence

in Education Fund. The fund shall consist of amounts appropriated

to it pursuant to section 4711 of this title and amounts credited

to it under subsection (d) of this section.

(b) Investment of fund assets

It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to invest

in full the amounts appropriated to the fund. Such investments may

be made only in public debt securities of the United States with

maturities suitable to the fund. For such purpose, such

obligations may be acquired (1) on original issue at the issue

price, or (2) by purchase of outstanding obligations at the market

place. The purposes for which obligations of the United States may

be issued under chapter 31 of title 31 are hereby extended to

authorize the issuance at par of special obligations exclusively to

the fund. Such special obligations shall bear interest at a rate

equal to the average rate of interest, computed as to the end of

the calendar month next preceding the date of such issue, borne by

all marketable interest-bearing obligations of the United States

then forming a part of the public debt, except that where such

average rate is not a multiple of 1/8 of 1 percent, the rate of

interest of such special obligations shall be the multiple of 1/8

of 1 percent next lower than such average rate. Such special

obligations shall be issued only if the Secretary determines that

the purchases of other interest-bearing obligations of the United

States, or of obligations guaranteed as to both principal and

interest by the United States or original issue or at the market

price, is not in the public interest.

(c) Authority to sell obligations

Any obligation acquired by the fund may be sold by the Secretary

at the market price.

(d) Proceeds from certain transactions credited to fund

The interest on, and the proceeds from the sale or redemption of,

any obligations held in the fund shall be credited to and form a

part of the fund.
