Offer: Gleitsman International Activist Award

Gleitsman International Activist Award

The Gleitsman International Activist Award, given biennially (alternating with the Citizen Activist Award), was created in 1993 by the late Alan Gleitsman to honor leadership in social activism that has improved the quality of life in countries and inspired others to do the same. The honoree receives $125,000 and a specially commissioned sculpture designed by Maya Lin, the creator of the Vietnam War Memorial. Past honorees have included Nelson Mandela, Muhammad Yunus, activists such as Dr. Jaya Arunachalam and Dr. Sakena Yacoobi, and, most recently, Karen Tse, founder of International Bridges to Justice.

The Gleitsman Program for Leadership in Social Change encourages individual commitment and leadership by recognizing the exceptional achievement of innovators who have sparked positive social change. We seek those individuals whose vision and courage inspire others to join with them in confronting and challenging injustice.

The Gleitsman Program is now accepting nominations for the 2011 International Activist Award. To nominate an individual, please complete the online form or PDF version and submit it to the selection committee along with the requested supplemental material by June 30th. The winner will be announced this fall.

Please note that the award is not presented posthumously, nor is it granted to groups or organizations. Self nominations cannot be considered.
