Fridtjof Nansen Refugee Award
International





Scholarship / Financial aid: a US$100,000 prize

Date: 2012

Deadline: N/A

Open to: individuals or organizations in recognition of extraordinary and dedicated service to refugees


Announcement follows

Formerly known as the Nansen Medal, this award is named after the late Norwegian polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen, the first League of Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the winner of the 1922 Nobel Peace Prize.

Instituted in 1954, the Nansen Refugee Award is given annually to an individual or an organization in recognition of extraordinary and dedicated service to refugees and is the most prestigious honour conferred by UNHCR. Anybody can nominate someone or some organization for the Nansen Award. Whatever their creed, colour, age or profession, every winner put in extraordinary effort and time to help the forcibly displaced around the world. The award consists of a commemorative medal and a US$100,000 monetary prize donated by the governments of Norway and Switzerland.

More than 60 individuals, groups or organizations have won the Nansen Refugee Award since Eleanor Roosevelt became the first winner in 1954.



Do you know of anybody who has gone beyond the call of duty and shown outstanding dedication and service to the refugee cause? Or maybe a group of people or an organization?

If so, please nominate them as a candidate for the Nansen Refugee Award. All you have to do is to request the nomination form here and send it to: nansen@unhcr.org

We need your help to identify inspiring and committed candidates deserving of public recognition for their dedication to refugees.

The call for nominations for the 2012 award opens on 2 December 2011.
