Amanda Wenczel awarded NJ Sea Grant Stew Tweed Scholarship for 2014


Amanda Wenczel, a doctoral candidate in Ecology and Evolution working at the Haskin Lab, is the winner of the New Jersey Sea Grant Stew Tweed Scholarship Award for 2014. Many of you may remember Stew who was a student of Hal Haskin at Rutgers and then spent a productive career as a County Extension Agent in fisheries and aquaculture.  The scholarship is intended to perpetuate Stew’s passion for shellfish culture and marine science education and his dedication for taking fisheries and marine-related technology and scientific information and finding ways to apply them to the real world of shellfish aquaculture and commercial fisheries. NJSGC and the scholarship fund partners and benefactors believe the Stew Tweed Scholarship Fund will become a long-term source for helping to cultivate future leaders for New Jersey’s fisheries and aquaculture industries.
