Schwartzburg Fund for Study Abroad

John (Andy) Schwartzburg, '64 benefited from participating in a study abroad program in Germany during his time at Lawrence.

Dwight A. & Marjorie S. Peterson Fund for International Experience

The Peterson Fund for International Experience was established in 2012 by Dwight and Marjorie Peterson.  Through this fund, the couple intends to provide Lawrence students with opportunities for research, travel, and experiential learning outside of the United States.  Dwight felt that his work, involving a wide range of foreign travel for a global company, provided him with education that rivaled that of his formal training years, leading the Petersons to believe that international experience is a necessity for a well-rounded education.  Dwight was a 1955 graduate of Lawrence and Marjorie a 1955 graduate of the University of Minnesota. Lawrence students with a Minnesota background are eligible to receive awards from The Peterson Fund.

Open to students whose home address is in Minnesota, or who attended high school in Minnesota.
