The Considine Award
The Kellogg Institute bestows this annual award, comprising a certificate and a $500 cash prize, during commencement activities in the spring. Established in 2002-03 to commemorate the late Rev. John Considine, a Maryknoll Missioner who made pioneering contributions to the building of strong ties between the US Catholic Church and the Catholic Church in Latin America, the award recognizes a student whose activities and studies reflect Rev. Considine’s aspirations and lifework.
