The 7th Annual Victor J Goldberg Prize is awarded to the Co-Directors of NISPED

The Seventh Annual Victor J. Goldberg IIE Prize for Peace in the Middle East was given in Rahat

The Institute of International Education (IIE) awards the Victor J. Goldberg IIE Prize for Peace in the Middle East annually to recognize outstanding work being conducted jointly by two individuals, one Arab and one Israeli, working together to advance the cause of peace in the Middle East. The two individuals whose work is judged to be most successful in bringing people together and breaking down the barriers of hatred toward “the other” share a $10,000 prize. The winners are selected by a prestigious international selection committee.

  • The Prize goes to two individuals. Either or both may be part of an organization, but the two individuals need to have taken an initiative with each other that either caused those organizations to be formed, or significantly moved those organizations in a new direction or to a new level of achievement.
  • As the award is a Prize for the individuals, not a Grant to support the organization or project, the money may be used by the winners in any way they choose.
  • The project being recognized must be an ongoing activity that is currently underway; it cannot be a proposal for a project to be done in the future.
  • Nominations may be submitted by the individuals themselves or by a third party.

According to Mr. Goldberg, “The intent of this award is to recognize innovation and reward those who are courageous and committed enough to work together to overcome the religious, cultural, ethnic, and political issues which divide the Middle East. We hope not only to recognize significant work being conducted today, but also to inspire others to join together across these divides to advance the cause of peace in the coming years.”

Allan E. Goodman, president of the Institute of International Education, says, “The Goldberg IIE Prize will encourage some of the best and the brightest young professionals to contribute their valuable knowledge and experience to the cause of peace in the Middle East, and will reward them for their courage and conviction in doing so. We believe this is the first Prize designed specifically to reward Arab-Israeli cooperation in this area. It is a wonderful embodiment of Vic Goldberg’s long-time commitment to bettering the world through international cooperation.”
