2018 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding

The call for nominations for the 2018 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding is now open. Nominations will be accepted through December 15, 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.

Nomination Criteria

An International Selection Committee will determine the awardee from the nominations received based on these criteria:

  • Sustained distinction in any field which exemplifies the ideals of Senator Fulbright and the Fulbright Program in promoting understanding and peaceful dialogue among nations and in strengthening educational and cultural ties across borders.
  • Individuals, two or more persons in partnership, or not-for-profits dedicated to the pursuit of peace and understanding may be nominated.
  • Fulbright alumni are especially welcomed, but alumni status is not required.

The winner must attend the ceremony to deliver a substantive keynote address (up to 20 minutes) to Fulbright alumni and distinguished guests. (Note: Nominations will be ranked by the International Selection Committee. If the first place nominee is unable to confirm the schedule for the event, the committee will certify a second place nominee to be offered the Prize instead.)

Please submit nominations via email to prize@fulbright.org  with the subject line: Fulbright Prize Nomination 2018. The deadline to submit nominations is December 15, 2017. Nominating materials must be sent in .PDF format.
