Every year, since 2006, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation honors its Founder, on July 20 (date of his death), through a series of ceremonies culminating in the delivery of the Gulbenkian Prizes.
In 2017, a new cycle of these Prizes was begun, which will last for five years, in which a Calouste Gulbenkian Prize of 100 thousand euros will be awarded annually to natural persons or Non-Profit Organizations, who have been distinguished internationally in the defense and realization of human rights, and three Gulbenkian Prizes, amounting to 50 thousand euros each, to natural persons or Non-Profit Organizations who have distinguished themselves in Portugal in the areas of Cohesion, Knowledge or Sustainability.
Applications are open until April 30. More information at the Foundation page https://gulbenkian.pt/fundacao/premios/premios-gulbenkian/.
