We are very pleased to announce that PABLO CARPINTERO (ARPI, Rio Cuarto) is the winner of the DANIEL FERNÁNDEZ SCHOLARSHIP.

It was not an easy endeavour to choose among three qualified colleagues in our country. We also want to congratulate all the other teachers who applied for the scholarship; our only regret is that there can only be one winner!
