Philadelphia, PA – This time last year, instrument manufacturer Metrohm USA announced a new $10,000 award that is open to all graduate, post-graduate and doctorate students residing and studying in the US and Canada, and who are performing novel research in the fields of titration, ion chromatography and/or electrochemistry.
The first winners of the Young Chemist Award were announced last week in a special ceremony at Pittcon 2013. In fact, the company says so many excellent entries made final selection difficult, so two prizes were awarded this year: Matthew Dawson (University of California Irvine) won the $10K grand-prize, and Caroline Parworth (University of California Davis) won a special runner-up prize of $1,000.
In addition to the prize money, the winners were also given the opportunity to present posters of their research at Pittcon.

Taking this philanthropy one step further, Metrohm USA says it introduced the Young Chemist award to recognize, celebrate and support brilliant science leaders of the future.
