The Charles Bronfman Prize recognizes Jewish humanitarians whose work, while inspired by personal Jewish values, is of universal benefit to all people.
Nominations for The Charles Bronfman Prize 2013 closed on January 15, 2013. The Charles Bronfman Prize accepts nominations in all areas of humanitarian endeavor across a broad spectrum of disciplines. Past recipients have distinguished themselves through their work in genetics, the environment, medical education, humanitarian relief, the transformation of public education and human rights.
Nominators from distinguished international institutions (including universities, scientific institutions, medical centers, the public sector, the non-profit sector, religious institutions, community leaders, and philanthropists) have helped identify qualified nominees. In turn, Judges of the Prize have been privileged to consider hundreds of qualified nominations from around the globe -- young women and men whose diverse range of humanitarian efforts include ground-breaking applications of medicine and science, education, human rights, conflict resolution, community development and compassionate care.
