Lori Ann Schwab '95 Prize for Community Service

The Lori Ann Schwab ’95 Prize for Community Service is a $1,800 award given annually by Grinnell College to recognize a senior student's service to the campus and local community during their time here. Although there are no restrictions on the use of the award, the recipient will be strongly encouraged to donate at least $500 to an organization with which they volunteered while at Grinnell. The recipient is announced during the Commencement weekend Baccalaureate program.

The Lori Ann Schwab Memorial Fund recognizes the spirit and memory of Lori Ann Schwab ’95 and her commitment to making the world a better place by helping others. Lori died from a tragic illness during a study-abroad program in London. Lori, whose home was in Berkeley, Calif., was an art major and was especially active at the college’s preschool and in women's advocacy.
