They left college to join the International Brigades to support the democratic republic in the Spanish Civil War. Previous winners have included students who established a free medical clinic in Detroit, fought apartheid in South Africa, worked to alleviate poverty in the slums of Brazil, and spearheaded the greening of Detroit effort.
Nominations of students and self-nominations should be sent as an email attachment to: Prof. Alexander Day at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations should be accompanied by a statement up to 500 words explaining why the nominee is deserving of the award.
