John (Andy) Schwartzburg, '64 benefited from participating in a study abroad program in Germany during his time at Lawrence. Fluent in German, he served as a German teacher for many years at The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey. Through a bequest, Andy wished to establish a fund at Lawrence that would help humanities students study abroad as a part of their undergraduate experience. This fund was established in 2016 and is administered by the Off-Campus Programs office. Grants will be given annually to students attending Lawrence-affiliated or -sponsored international off-campus study programs that are a term, semester, or academic year in length.
Awards for 2017-18 Schwartzburg Fund recipients are anticipated to be $1,000 to $2,000.
