The Kroc Institute's Yarrow Award is given annually to peace studies undergraduates who demonstrate academic excellence and commitment to service in peace and justice. Recipients are selected by a committee of Kroc faculty and fellows after the completion of the student's junior year. Students receive a monetary award and special recognition during commencement weekend events.
