Swarthmore Centennial Foundation’s Shine a Light Award for Social Justice, Equity, and Inclusion
This Swarthmore Centennial Foundation will recognize a person or organization who has made Swarthmore a more diverse, inclusive and equitable place to work, learn, do business, or live. The award honors a member of the Swarthmore community who has demonstrated compassion, perseverance, courage, and leadership by engaging in the difficult work of fostering human dignity and our common humanity.
Nominations: The Swarthmore Centennial Foundation will accept nominations for the award through May 15, 2021. We seek nominees and letters of recommendations from any members of the Swarthmore community, including but not limited to those who work, attend school, volunteer, or live in the Borough. In other words, this award is not limited to Swarthmore residents. The Swarthmore Centennial Foundation welcomes and encourages letters from all members of the community and looks to evaluate the nominees based on contributions to the community, not the prose of the letter writers.
Award: The award of $2500 will be given directly to the recipient.
Letters of nomination must be submitted by 5/15/2021, to Swarthmorefoundation@gmail.com or mailed to:
