The Harrop and Ruth Freeman Prize in Peace Studies is awarded annually in the spring to a Cornell graduating senior. The Freemans established the prize to offer recognition and encouragement to Cornell undergraduate students actively engaged in promoting peace and to encourage continued work or education in the field of peace studies. It was established in 1984 to honor Ruth Freeman, the first woman on the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences. Ruth died in April 1988 and Harrop in October 1993. A bequest from the Freemans ensures that future Cornell students will be recognized for their achievements and continuing work in peace activities.
