Jake – Herchel Smith Scholarship to Harvard

A generous benefaction from the late Dr Herchel Smith enables us to send a few recent graduates to Harvard for a year, to spend a year as Special Students. In addition, around five current undergraduates take part in the summer Program for Research in Science and Engineering. Those who go on either of these schemes have very rewarding and worthwhile times, as Jake Nunley, one of 2016–17’s  Herchel Smith scholars, describes.
