Gruber Prize Program Overview

The Gruber Foundation honors and encourages excellence in the fields of Cosmology, Genetics, Neuroscience, Justice, and Women’s Rights, recognizing groundbreaking work that provides new models that inspire and enable fundamental shifts in knowledge and culture.

In the spring of 2011, Yale University and The Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation signed an agreement that established The Gruber Foundation, which will carry on its philanthropic mission from Yale. The Foundation’s Science Prizes and its Young Scientist Awards will remain the same; the missions of the Justice and Women’s Rights Prizes have merged and transitioned into the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights.
