The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has once again opened nominations for the Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize until next March 15th. This year the Prize will be awarded to individuals or non profit organizations that have made a valuable impact and commitment towards inter-cultural, inter-ethnic and inter-religious dialogue and the respect for difference. The Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize, worth € 100.000, distinguishes each year an individual or organization whose thoughts or actions made a decisive contribution on understanding, defending or fostering the universal values of the human condition, in the field of intercultural dialogue or respect for biodiversity (in alternate years). The Prize is open to individuals or non-profit institutions, regardless of nationality. Prize recipients from previous years in the field of intercultural dialogue include the Peace Research Institute in the Middle East (PRIME), the United Nations High-Commissioner for the Refugees (UNHCR) and the Hand in Hand Center for Jewish-Arab Education.
The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, based in Lisbon (Portugal) is a non-profit Portuguese foundation, both operating and grantmaking in the fields of arts, science, education and human development. Visit our website for more information about our activities, in Portugal and abroad.
In 2006, to commemorate its 50th anniversary, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation established the Calouste Gulbenkian Prizes in order to emphasise the multiple dimensions that influenced the Founder’s, Mr. Calouste Gulbenkian, life and personality. For further information, see the site, or contact:
