Gustie awarded science honor

The Swedish Council of America has named Gustavus Adolphus College junior Dawn Comstock as the winner of the Glenn T. Seaborg Science Award for 2012. The award is given annually to an outstanding student from one of six U.S. colleges with Scandinavian heritage that maintain an active connection with modern Scandinavia through language study, student exchange programs, and cultural events. The student must also be a science or mathematics major.

The award will allow Comstock to travel to Sweden in December and attend the Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar as well as several events during Nobel Prize Week, including the Nobel Reception, the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony, the Nobel Banquet, and the Nobel Night Cap.
