Courageous Woman Awards

wrc_award1The Courageous Woman Awards acknowledge and recognize women who see injustice or need, act on it, take risks in order to do the right thing, and raise their voices to champion women. Founded in 2011 by Friends of the Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center at Augsburg College, the awards program recognizes women who courageously strive for social justice and peace on campus or in the wider community and whose efforts, be they small or large, make a difference to women.

Award recipients are selected from a pool of nominations and receive a prize of $1,000. Anyone may propose a nominee. Nominators may nominate only one woman per year. Eligible for nomination are women in the Augsburg student body, faculty, and staff as well as women from the broader Twin Cities community.  For questions about the Awards, please contact Adriane Brown at brownad@augsburg.edu.

The deadline for nominations for the 2013 Courageous Woman Awards was March 15.

The Courageous Woman Awards and Koryne Horbal Lecture are made possible through generous philanthropic gifts to the Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center. Donors are recognized at the annual Koryne Horbal Lecture. If you wish to make a gift in support of the Courageous Woman Awards or the Koryne Horbal Lecture, please contact Donna McLean, Director of Development Initiatives, mclean@augsburg.edu or 612-330-1613.
