Nigel wins 2012 Pierce Scholarship

Nigel Reuel is one of only 6 recipients of the Pierce Antibodies scholarship

This scholarship is from Thermo Fisher Scientific for future science scholars as  an opportunity to win $10,000 in scholarship funding for the 2012-2013 academic school year. This scholarship was created to help provide educational opportunities for the future generation of scientists. Graduate students or undergraduate students must be enrolled in an accredited college for the 2012 fall semester to qualify for this scholarship. A pre-selected committee will award two $10,000 scholarships and four $5,000 scholarships among the candidates.
