The Fulbright Association will present its 2012 J. William Fulbright Prize for International Understanding to the international medical humanitarian organization MSF. The formal award ceremony is scheduled for September 8, 2012, at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
“This is the first time the Prize has been given to an organization rather than to individuals,” said Patricia Krebs, president of the Fulbright Association. “MSF was a unanimous first choice of the International Selection Committee because of the shared goals of the two organizations in promoting global understanding and humanitarian principles.”
