Dan David Prize

The Dan David Prize recognizes and encourages innovative and interdisciplinary research that cuts across traditional boundaries and paradigms. It aims to foster universal values of excellence, creativity, justice, democracy and progress and to promote the scientific, technological and humanistic achievements that advance and improve our world. The Prize covers three time dimensions - Past, Present and Future - that represent realms of human achievement. Each year the International Board chooses one field within each time dimension. Three prizes of one million US dollars each are granted annually in the fields chosen for the three time dimensions; laureates donate 10% of their prize money to postgraduate students in their respective fields, thereby contributing to the community and fostering a new generation of scholars.

Eligibility: Nominees should:

• Be engaged in outstanding and innovative work related to the study of the human past, employing any chronological, geographical and methodological focus
• Have earned a doctorate or have equivalent experience
• Have completed at least one major piece of work, such as a book, major publication(s), exhibition, documentary film or public humanities project
• Exhibit strong potential for future scholarly excellence, innovation and leadership that will help shape the study of the past for years to come
• Be in the early or mid-stage of their career
