The call for nominations for the 2018 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding is now open! Nominations will be accepted through December 4, 2017.
History of the Fulbright Prize
The Fulbright Prize was first awarded to Nelson Mandela in 1993 and most recently to Richard C. Lugar in 2016. The 2018 Prize will be awarded in early autumn 2018 in a ceremony and reception developed separately from the 41st Annual Fulbright Association Conference (which is slated to occur in November 2018). The Fulbright Association is grateful to the Coca Cola Company for its co-sponsorship from 1993-2008 and for its generous additions to the Prize Endowment initiative begun by the late John B. Hurford, Fulbright scholar to India. Committed alumni and friends of the Fulbright Program have added to the fund over the years. The Prize carries a monetary award of $50,000.
An International Selection Committee will determine the awardee from the nominations received based on these criteria:
